Welcome to Acute Cardiovascular Care 2016

 Dear friends and colleagues,

The annual meeting of the Acute Cardiovascular Care Association of the ESC is the prime scientific event for all health care professionals working in acute cardiac care. This meeting brings together cardiologists, intensivists, anesthesiologists, internists, cardiac surgeons, nurses, paramedics and other allied professionals who care for acutely ill cardiac patients.

This year's theme is "managing risk in acute cardiovascular care". The programme will offer in-depth presentations by leading experts of the acute coronary syndromes, anti thrombotic therapy, reperfusion and revascularization, acute heart failure and circulatory support, management of arrhythmias in the acute setting and general intensive care. Research will also be at the heart of the congress and we encourage you and your colleagues to choose Acute Cardiovascular Care to submit the results of your studies and be selected for oral abstract sessions or poster sessions and to compete for the Young Investigator Awards.

The Acute Cardiovascular Care Association of the ESC continually invests in the education of young doctors and researchers. Register at a beneficial rate and accelerate your education in the cross disciplinary fundamentals and pick up the latest updates in the field. The Educational Track is a unique educational opportunity for doctors in training and practicing cardiologists wanting to refresh their skills.

Acute Cardiovascular Care 2016 is also an opportunity to keep up to date with Industry partners in the field who will showcase their latest advances on their booths in the Exhibitions and during the Satellite Symposia.

Lisbon’s beautifully scenic waterfront location on a series of hills seduces anyone, not only as one of the world’s most beautiful cities but a place that forces you to take things slowly. The city’s wealth of historical, cultural and social attractions promise to enrich your Congress experience!

On behalf of the ACCA Board and the Congress Programme Committee, we look forward to welcoming you to Lisbon.
