Pre-Scope for Intervention - ESC Congress 2016

Organised by EAPCI

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

The ESC Congress 2016 call for session will soon open and will close on September 30.
EAPCI decided to launch a pre-scope process to allow ESC members and societies with an interest in intervention, to submit their ideas for the programme for the next ESC Congress in Rome.

Submitting your proposal through our Pre-Scope will allow EAPCI more time to consider the proposals and help generate even more innovative and top quality content in Intervention.

This pre-scope process will allow you to submit your proposals to the association who will collect them, review and further develop them to produce recommendations for the scoping process for the ESC Congress scientific programme.

To submit your pre-scope proposals, simply click on the "Submit" button below.

You are required to give:

  • A title for the session proposal
  • Session topic and type ( Symposium – Case-based Symposium – Debate)
  • Names of potentiel chairpersons
  • Titles for up presentations/cases
  • Names of the respective speakers (ideally not more than 2 from the same country and none from the same lab – this also applies to the Chairs) + email address

Please do not invite anyone at this time.

What to avoid?

  • Uncompleted sessions
  • Device-oriented sessions

The type of sessions you need to know:

  • Meet the expert session (90’): three short clinical cases with expert panel discussion
  • Guidelines in daily practice: 2 clinical cases  - (each will have a 40 minutes presentation time in which should be be discuss , Guidelines recommendations &/or Gaps in the Guidelines)
  • Case-based Symposium
  • Traditional Symposium

Topic priorities

  • NSTEMI oriented sessions including drugs, device and multivessel disease revascularization
  • Concomitant CAD and valve disease
  • Remaining indications for SAVR in 2016
  • Transcatheter Mitral Valve Repair and Replacement. 
  • Post-ACS/stenting secondary prevention : device but also drugs
  • Acute and chronic heart failure: LVAD as an alternative to heart transplantation
  • Graft transplant CAD
  • Progression and regression of CAD
  • Stroke treatment and cathlab network facilities

Of note, these topic priorities are listed to provide guidance. “Out of the box” proposals are of course welcome+++

The Intervention pre-scope submission will close on 30 June.

All proposals will be considered by the EAPCI reviewing committee, who will then directly enter selected sessions in the ESC Congress 2016 SCOPE. Please note that these submissions will be highlighted as coming from the EAPCI Community.

 If you do submit your Intervention proposals via this pre-scope process, it is not necessary to submit further proposals in the ESC Scope which closes in September 2015. 

We trust this pre-scope process will allow us to provide a stronger program to the ESC Congress 2016 with excellent contributions from our community.  


We look forward to receiving your pre-scope proposals for the ESC Congress 2016.
With kind regards,

Jean-Philippe Collet, Chair of the EAPCI Scientific Program and Congress Committee

Christoph Naber, Vice Chair Chair of the EAPCI Scientific Program and Congress Committee

Giulio Guagliumi, Past Chair of the EAPCI Scientific Program and Congress Committee
