  Abstract submission deadline extended to 30 June 2011
  Recently, we have received several requests to extend the abstract submission deadline for MTS 2011 congress.  The main reason cited was that they were unable to submit their abstracts online without going through the congress registration. After due consideration, the organising committee have agreed to extend it to 30 June 2011.  Besides, we have also undone the precondition required for abstract submission.

If you thought you have missed the boat, this will be your last opportunity to catch the last train.

Meanwhile, we are in the process of going through the abstracts submitted; and for those who have submitted, we will let you know of the decision as soon as possible so that you can start preparing for the presentation.  Thank you.

Welcome message from the Organising Chairman


It is my great pleasure to welcome you to Malaysian Thoracic Society Annual Congress 2011. The congress will be held in Shangri-La Hotel, Kuala Lumpur. With a fabulous location and superb scientific programme lined up, I am sure the congress will be able to cater for the continuous medical education needs of various groups of healthcare practitioners from respiratory and general physicians to family medicine specialists and general practitioners. We also welcome allied healthcare professionals who are pivotal in the delivery of healthcare excellence.

The MTS annual general meeting will also be held during the congress. We welcome you to join our society. Good news! MTS has a new category of membership called "Affiliate Membership" for non-doctors.

I hope to see you in Shangri-La Hotel in July 2011.

Thank you.
