ESC Congress 2020 The Digital Experience

European Society of Cardiology

29 August to 1 September 2020

ESC Congress, the world's largest cardiovascular event, moves 100% online for the first time in its 70-year history, to create ESC Congress 2020, Challenging Times, Infinite Possibilities.

The decision by the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) follows an announcement from the Dutch government banning public gatherings until 1 September to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

This cutting-edge, online event will be extraordinary. The ESC is creating a digital experience to disseminate the most exciting cardiovascular science in the most engaging formats possible - and featuring key opinion leaders from around the world.

A taste of what's to come:

    Dedicated COVID-19 track showcasing first-hand experience of top experts across the globe.

    Late-Breaking Trial Sessions revealing the most anticipated clinical results.

    Novel research presented in abstracts covering all areas of cardiovascular science.

    Key opinion leaders explaining how new research impacts practice.

    New ESC Clinical Practice Guidelines introduced and discussed by those who wrote them.

Stay tuned for details of online press conferences.

The call for Late-Breaking Science is open until 21 May.
