IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

We regret to inform you that the ESCR Annual Scientific Meeting 2020 in Dubrovnik (October 15-17) cannot be held as initially planned.

The ESCR leadership together with the local organizing committee acknowledges and greatly appreciates that many of you are on the front line of dealing with the COVID-19 epidemic in your hospitals and are aware that you have other priorities for the foreseeable future. For October, the situation with regards to health risks, restrictions to traveling/meetings and patient burden of hospitals is unpredictable. 

Thus, we believe it is not wise to hold the ESCR congress in Dubrovnik as a face-to-face meeting. Instead, ESCR will provide you with an online, virtual meeting programme that will update you on the state-of-the-art in cardiovascular imaging through digital lectures by renowned speakers. An application will be made to the EACCME® for CME accreditation of this event. The preparations for the online meeting have already started, and we look forward to sharing with you more details in the near future. 

Please keep posted and stay healthy!

Prof. Jens Bremerich, ESCR Society President 
Prof. Maja Hrabak-Paar, ESCR 2020 Congress President
