Our mission is to become a worldwide reference for education in the field for all professionals involved in the process to dissemintate knowledge & skills of Acute Cardiovascular Care
Our mission is to promote excellence in clinical diagnosis, research, technical development, and education in cardiovascular imaging in Europe.
Our mission: To promote excellence in research, practice, education and policy in cardiovascular health, primary and secondary prevention.
Our goal is to reduce the burden in cardiovascular disease in Europe through percutaneous cardiovascular interventions.
Our Mission is "to improve the quality of life of the population by reducing the impact of cardiac rhythm disturbances and reduce sudden cardiac death"
To improve quality of life and logevity, through better prevention, diagnosis and treatment of heart failure, including the establishment of networks for its management, education and research.

Oral sessions are featuring titles/abstracts selected for their outstanding quality, presented orally in the lecture room and chaired by an expert in the field.
Poster sessions stay on display for the length of the meeting and will be presented by the researchers.
Selected oral and poster presenters are informed by e-mail directly. Abstracts and titles submitted prior to the deadlines will be ensured to be published in the final programme of the Meeting. Only authors mentioned in your submission will be cited in the programme.
Instructions for poster presentation:
Assignments of poster locations will be made in advance. Each display area will be numbered and a numbered list of poster titles with presenters' names will be available and posted in the poster session room. All posters should be arranged in the poster session room at least 30 minutes prior to the beginning of the session. Each poster must have at least one presenter and the presenter(s) must remain with their poster throughout the poster session to answer questions.
Guidelines for Poster Layout:
