ESCR Annual Scientific Meeting 2024

Dear Colleagues, dear Friends

After the COVID pandemic cancelled the European Society of Cardiovascular Radiology (ESCR) Annual Meeting 2020 in Dubrovnik, it is my honour and pleasure to welcome you to the ESCR Annual Scientific Meeting 2024, which will take place from October 24 to 26, 2024, in Dubrovnik, Croatia.

The ESCR 2024 Annual Meeting programme includes many state-of-the-art educational sessions for experienced cardiovascular radiologists, but also for young (and not so young) radiologists just entering the field, and for radiographers who are a very important part of the cardiovascular imaging team. A special part of the programme will be dedicated to imaging pediatric and congenital heart disease, which is playing an increasingly important role in the management of these patients. We are again planning to strengthen our collaboration with the ESCR partner societies through joint sessions and to offer CT and MRI workshops for those who wish to improve their practical experience in using different software applications in their daily clinical routine. During scientific sessions, you will be able to share your latest research results in the form of oral or poster presentations and discuss them with your colleagues. The EBCR diploma exam will be offered to radiologists wishing to obtain Level 3 certification in cardiovascular radiology. During the meeting, you can meet world-renowned experts in cardiovascular radiology in a warm and friendly atmosphere and learn about the latest technological achievements at symposia organized by our industry partners.

The ESCR Annual Scientific Meeting 2024 will take place in Croatia, in the beautiful city of Dubrovnik. The old town of Dubrovnik, then known as the Republic of Ragusa, was an important naval power in the Mediterranean in the Middle Ages and has been on the UNESCO World Heritage List since 1979. You will be able to walk on the famous medieval stone walls of Dubrovnik and visit the oldest quarantine in the world, one of the oldest pharmacies, numerous churches, monasteries, palaces and fountains from the Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque periods, as well as filming locations of “Games of Thrones” scenes. The congress venue is located on the quiet Babin kuk peninsula, just 15 minutes from the old town of Dubrovnik.

Welcome to Dubrovnik, the ”Pearl of the Adriatic”!


Assist. Prof. Dr. Maja Hrabak Paar

SCAM WARNINGS – BE VIGILANT!

Delegates, participants, exhibitors and other partners are continually targeted by companies claiming to be, or work with, event organisers. They use existing event branding and may appear genuine. In the past this has included directories and hotel bookings, besides other requests.

Our official partners are listed on the conference website, thus we ask you to retrieve all information and guidance from there only.

ESCR has no impact on possible scam attempts and thus will not assume any liability for such activity. Please do inform us immediately if you receive anything unexpected, looking like potential scam or that you are unsure of.

What to do if targeted by a scammer

In case you encounter or receive scam:
Ignore completely and do not communicate in any way. Writing letters and responding to emails simply confirms that you exist and are available at the address/email address/number they have and therefore to continue or try to pursue a payment.
1. Alert us immediately
2. Do not pay anything
3. Do not communicate with the scammers even when they threaten legal action

Hotel booking agencies

Please beware of hotel booking companies who contact participants, speakers and supporting companies claiming to be either a preferred supplier or, in some cases, working for our event, that demand up-front payment, charge substantial penalties for changes or cancellation and may not even make a reservation with the unapproved hotel.
We advise that you make your arrangements through reputable suppliers and not via unsolicited phone calls or emails.

Unsolicited Marketing Communications

Companies are being targeted by agencies claiming to supply exhibitor/visitor/participant lists and details relating to our events and products at a cost. Be aware that this data is likely fraudulent. If you receive any such unsolicited offers, please do not respond unless you have checked with us first.

If you are unsure of any correspondence received, please contact us directly at office@escr.org.
