As PCS President, I am proud to welcome you to the Pakistan’s largest meeting in the respiratory field.
The members of the Scientific committee, together with all our team, are working hard to bring you a programme that addresses the needs of all respiratory professionals, from scientists to clinicians and allied health professionals.
I am confident that this international conference 2018 will stimulate debate and shed new light on advances in the respiratory field.
Alongside the programme, the Conference will provide the perfect opportunity for our members and other delegates to network with peers from across the country as well as with International speakers. Knowledge is deepened when it is shared and by meeting together, discussing experiences and debating varying approaches to key topics, we can work towards a better future for respiratory health.
As we all know that any conference is not successful without the participation of individuals, we will strongly urge you to send research abstract and make plan to attend Chest conference 2018. Beside the learning platform, ample opportunities will be offered for entertainment and sightseeing as the venue of this conference is Serena Islamabad.
I look forward to welcoming you to Islamabad for the most exciting event in the respiratory calendar.

I am delighted to present to you our full program of named lectures, major symposia, original research articles and poster discussions for the Scientific Meeting, Chestcon 2018.
The Science and Research Committee has organized an outstanding line up of speakers for the Meeting, which I believe will provide something of interest to all health professionals involved in the care of patients with respiratory diseases. Our symposia program contains some outstanding international speakers who together with our own national experts will inform delegates of the very latest developments in the clinical, translational and basic science of lung diseases.
Chestcon remains the highlight of our professional calendar and provides a tremendous networking opportunity. It particularly gives the chance to interact with clinicians and scientific colleagues from within Pakistan and abroad in the spoken and poster abstract sessions, which remain a very important component of the Meeting.
This does not sum up everything about the Meeting, we have planned several social events which will let you interact with old friends and also make new ones. Moreover, we will be pleased to welcome you with the Lahori hospitality, food, music and culture. A lot of effort has been employed and I am sure that academics blended with leisure will ensure that you have a quality time.
I look forward to welcoming you to Lahore in late spring 2018.
