EACVI 2020 Cancellation Your Questions Answered

General Cancellation Information

Why has the EACVI 2020 congress been cancelled?

Given our responsibility to protect the health of our faculty, delegates and staff, the EACVI Board has decided that cancelling our physical congress in Barcelona (9-12 December) is the only responsible course of action.

Will the congress be postponed to a later date?

There will be no EACVI 2020 congress this year.

However, the EACVI is commited to deliver an outstanding learning and networking opportunity for the cardiac imaging community. As such, the association launches the most innovative online CV imaging event ever undertaken: ‘EACVI – Best of Imaging 2020’ on 11 and 12 December.


Will my registration fee be refunded?

Your registration fee will be refunded in full as soon as possible. We recognise the disappointment and inconvenience this has caused, and we are waiving our normal reimbursement rules.

How and when will my registration fee be refunded?

You will be automatically refunded on the credit card you used to register. In case the payment was done by bank transfer you can add the bank details in your MY ESC account. Note that the registration will only be refunded to the account used for the payment of your registration.

How should I apply for cancellation/refund?

You do not need to apply, your registration will be automatically cancelled and refunded.


Will my abstract still be published and where?

Publication is linked to presentation at a congress.

Abstracts will be available on the on-demand platform during 'EACVI – Best of Imaging 2020' until 12 January 2021, on ESC 365 and as an abstract book supplement to the EHJ-CI.

I bought my membership at the same time as my congress registration. Will I be reimbursed the full amount?
