We are delighted to be back onsite in Barcelona this year with an outstanding four-day agenda to share, with peers and friends, the latest developments in cardiovascular medicine and patient care.
Many of the sessions will be streamed live from the congress centre for those who are unable to travel.
We invite you to start your journey to the 'Magic of Cardiology'.
Find out what will be happening in Barcelona in a series of short conversations between Stephan Achenbach (ESC President), Stephan Windecker (Congress Programme Committee Chair) and Franz Weidinger (ESC President-Elect)
Your state-of-the-art programme
In Barcelona, you can expect to attend new session formats, as well as onsite activities to facilitate networking to share the latest developments in cardiovascular medicine and patient care with peers and friends. We are determined to make the experience of attending a congress in person more memorable and rewarding than it has ever been before.
The digital experience will continue to bring the clinical updates to those who are unable to attend in person. The full programme will be available on demand and many of the sessions will be streamed live from the congress centre in Barcelona.
The four-day programme will be rich and stimulating, with important content for clinical practice and research.
The spotlight in 2022 is 'Cardiac imaging', with its profound implications for prevention, diagnosis, clinical decision-making, guiding of interventions and follow-up of therapeutic procedures.
Importantly, the most innovative scientific updates from late-breaking clinical trials and ground-breaking studies will be featured in our Hot Line Sessions and throughout the programme. A further highlight is the release of four new ESC Clinical Practice Guidelines, accompanied by state-of-the-art summaries to inform and improve clinical practice and implementation.
