Ok, got it
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the government in the Netherlands has banned all meetings until 1 September. As Amsterdam was to be our host city, it is no longer possible for ESC Congress to take place as planned. However, the ESC remains committed to delivering practice-changing science to the cardiology community, and we look forward to bringing you 'ESC Congress 2020: Challenging Times, Infinite Possibilities'.
The congress will not be postponed. The latest novel science, new ESC Clinical Practice Guidelines science, as well as a full abstract programme will be shared in a unique and exciting new format. From Saturday, 29 August to Tuesday, 1 September you can take part in 'ESC Congress 2020: Challenging Times, Infinite Possibilities'. Watch this space for more details coming soon.
You will receive more information by the end of May. Thank you for your patience.
Abstract and clinical case results were announced on Wednesday, 6 May. Late-Breaking Science results will be announced by the end of June. Following the review and selection process, each submitter will be notified by email to confirm if their submission is accepted or not. We will contact the assigned presenter with further information by email in due course.
One week before the congress, accepted abstracts will be available on ESC 365 – the online library, via the Scientific Programme & Planner and on the ESC Congresses Mobile App. The presentation platform wlll be confirmed in due course, along with your next steps. All presented abstracts will be published in the abstract supplement of the European Heart Journal – Volume 41, October 2020.
Yes. Withdrawals are still possible after the results are announced. If you wish to withdraw your abstract/clinical case/Late-Breaking Science, please notify us as quickly as possible, stating the title and number to be withdrawn.
The Late-Breaking Science submission is open until 21 May 2020. The ESC is putting in place the necessary conditions to ensure the Late-Breaking Science will have utmost visibility and reach in 'ESC Congress 2020: Challenging Times, Infinite Possibilities'. Instructions will be provided to the presenter when the results are announced.

Being a FESC shows your high level of engagement with the ESC. Your FESC fee contributes to the community, ensuring the good running of the FESC programme with its many benefits throughout the year. ESC Congress is taking place in a different format this year due to exceptional circumstances. FESC fees are separate from the ESC Congress 2020 registration fees and are therefore not refundable. The ESC is committed to ensuring the FESC community continues to receive long-term value and recognition from their fellowship and will be in contact with new developments as they become available. For any queries, please contact the FESC team.
Each meeting chair will decide on the way to proceed and you will be advised in due course.
The page will be regularly updated. You can also contact the congress team.
