Dyspnea 2024 - Montreal

Welcome to Dyspnea 2024!

The Dyspnea Society is an international multidisciplinary community that aims to advance scientific knowledge of dyspnea (breathlessness) and its translation to clinical practice. The Dyspnea Society's international scientific meeting serves an important role in addressing these aims by bringing together researchers, trainees, clinical professionals and industry stakeholders with a shared interest in better understanding the complex and multifactorial symptom of dyspnea.

The Dyspnea Society's 7th international scientific meeting is being hosted by McGill University in beautiful downtown Montreal, Quebec, Canada on June 26-29, 2024.

The organizing committee is happy to welcome you to the Dyspnea 2024 event website! Here you will find everything you need to know about the event. Through this website, you can register, pay the registration fee and submit an abstract. You will also be able to explore the scientific program, which includes presentations on the Mechanisms, Measurement and Management of Dyspnea from established and emerging leaders in the field.

We look forward to seeing you at Dyspnea 2024 in Montreal!
