This year's Congress of the International Society of Thrombosis and Haemostasis (ISTH) took place in person in Montréal, Canada, from June 24-28, 2023. The conference, held annually, highlighted cutting-edge advances in basic, translational, population and clinical sciences relevant to the Society. As for all ISTH congresses, we offered a special, congress-specific scientific theme; this year, the special theme was immunothrombosis. Certainly, over the last few years, COVID-19 infection and its related thrombotic and other complications have renewed interest in the concepts of thromboinflammation and immunothrombosis; namely, the relationship between inflammation, infection and clotting. Other main scientific themes of the Congress included Arterial Thromboembolism, Coagulation and Natural Anticoagulants, Diagnostics and Omics, Fibrinolysis and Proteolysis, Hemophilia and Rare Bleeding Disorders, Hemostatic System in Cancer, Inflammation and Immunity, Pediatrics, Platelet Disorders, von Willebrand Disease and Thrombotic Microangiopathies, Platelets and Megakaryocytes, Vascular Biology, Venous Thromboembolism and Women's Health. Among other sessions, the program included 28 State-of-the-Art (SOA) sessions with a total of 84 talks given by internationally recognized leaders in the field. SOA speakers were invited to prepare brief illustrated reviews of their talks that were peer reviewed and are included in this article. These illustrated capsules highlight the major scientific advances with potential to impact clinical practice. Readers are invited to take advantage of the excellent educational resource provided by these illustrated capsules. They are also encouraged to use the image in social media to draw attention to the high quality and impact of the science presented at the Congress.
