Coronavirus and EHRA 2020

I am very sad to inform you that EHRA 2020, the scientific congress of the European Heart Rhythm Association scheduled for Vienna later this month, will not proceed as planned.

The ESC and EHRA leadership have been following closely the recent developments around COVID-19. It is clear that severe measures must be prepared and physicians and hospitals need to ready themselves to deal with the epidemic. As a result, over the past few days, more than one-third of our congress faculty have had to cancel their participation – a number which continues to rise.

We have discussed the situation with our partners who share the opinion that cancelling EHRA 2020 is the only responsible course of action under the current circumstances.

At EHRA, our focus now is to allow you and your hospital to fight this epidemic. We wish you all the best in these uncertain times and look forward to seeing you in the future.

Check the FAQ webpage to get answers to your questions.

On behalf of the EHRA Executive Board and the Congress Chairs Profs. Haran Burri and Katja Zeppenfeld,

Hein Heidbuchel
EHRA President 2018-2020

Declaration of interest

The existence of potential conflicts of interest does not necessarily indicate a bias. However, it is our ethical obligation to inform participants so that they are made aware of any relationship that might cause unintentional bias.

A potential conflict of interest may arise from various relationships, past or present, such as employment, consultancy, investments and stock ownership, funding for research, family relationship etc. This will allow the audience to take potential conflicts of interest into account when assessing the objectivity of the presentation.

When accepting the role(s) via the agreement form, Speakers/ Chairpersons/ Discussant / Presenter have declared possible conflicts of interest.

At the Congress, Speaker must declare a possible conflict of interest regarding their current presentation on their first slide and Chairpersons/Discussants/Judges must declare a possible conflict of interest regarding the topics of the presentations orally at the beginning of the session.
