The ISTH convenes an international Congress every two years, while the Scientific and Standardization Committee (SSC) and its subcommittees meet every year. Both meetings are held jointly in Congress (odd) years.

In May of 2016, the ISTH Council announced the Society’s strategic decision to hold our global congress annually formally, starting in 2020. The new annual ISTH congresses will fully incorporate highly valued SSC components, recognizing the value of the SSC’s work and its highly important applications, making them more accessible to the wider community. The congress format will also be shorter and more compact, establishing a contemporary meeting structure. This format aligns with trends in global medical meetings, which indicate that participants and other stakeholders prefer shorter meetings to minimize time away from home and/or work.
