About the SSC 2018
ISTH SSC 2018 is a scientific event in the field of thrombosis and hemostasis that brings together the world’s leading experts. SSC meetings are a platform for scientific and clinical working groups. SSC 2018 will facilitate a discourse about current diagnostic and therapeutic challenges, discussing novel approaches and standards.
About the SSC
The Scientific and Standardization Committee (SSC) is a permanent committee of the International Society of Thrombosis and Hemostasis (ISTH). The SSC has independent authority over its scientific program and reports to the ISTH Council. It is made up of 20 subcommittees in addition to one standing committees and the executive committee.

Standards, Nomenclature, Registries and Databases
The SSC supports the ISTH’s mission through developing and recommending standards relevant to the fields of thrombosis and hemostasis. Many of the standards developed by the SSC are adopted by the World Health Organization (WHO) as International Standards.
The SSC began as the authoritative body which first standardized the naming of blood clotting factors. Its subcommittees act as expert bodies in the standardization of nomenclature to support the blood clotting community. Its recommendations and classifications are published in the Society’s official journal, the Journal of Thrombosis and Haemostasis (JTH).
The SSC supports numerous registries and databases where information is collected, updated and shared with the scientific community for greater understanding on the underlying causes of hemorrhagic and thrombotic disorders. SSC structure and function can be found in the SSC Rules and Guidelines.
Networking, Education and Annual Meetings
The SSC draws its strength and credibility from the hundreds of physicians and scientists who volunteer to lead and participate in its activities.
The SSC organizes annual meetings where subcommittee members and experts present their ongoing work in public sessions. These sessions discuss the latest research on bleeding and thrombotic disorders and provide information that attendees can use to improve their ability to diagnose and treat the various disorders of hemostasis.
About the ISTH
The International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis (ISTH) is a global not-for-profit membership organization advancing the understanding, prevention, diagnosis and treatment of thrombotic and bleeding disorders. The Society is dedicated to transformative scientific discoveries and clinical practices, the development of young professionals and the education of physicians, scientists and allied health professionals. The ISTH promotes education and outreach initiatives, research activities, scientific meetings, peer-reviewed publications, expert committees and the development of standards allowing a common language and approach to basic and clinical science all over the world.
In the 1950s, a group of investigators used seed money from the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI) to form the International Committee on Thrombosis and Haemostasis (ICTH). In the 1960s, the ICTH grew larger and became the International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis (ISTH). The ICTH focused on blood coagulation and hemorrhagic disorders while the ISTH expanded to include platelet function and regulation, the mechanisms of thrombosis, fibrinolysis and thrombolysis, and problems of thromboembolic disorders.
Today, the ISTH is the leading thrombosis and hemostasis professional organization in the world with more than 4000 members in almost 100 countries.
