OUR MISSION: TO REDUCE THE BURDEN OF CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE
Dear Friends and Colleagues,
The Council on Basic Cardiovascular Science (CBCS) and the basic science coordinators of the ESC Congress Programme Committee would like to thank all proponents of symposia for their contribution to the scientific success of the upcoming ESC Congress in Amsterdam.
The standard procedure to generate a high quality scientific content in the area of basic science involves the so called 'Pre-Scope' process. In this process, proposals are collected by the CBCS in spring and later ranked by the Council members.
Based on the result, the best proposals are selected, mergers suggested, and obvious gaps filled. A short list of about 30 proposals is then entered into the official SCOPE I grading by the ESC in September with the label 'developed and endorsed by the Council on Basic Cardiovascular Science'.
In the past years, the general panel of ESC graders has recognised the very high quality of these proposals, showing that the additional time and effort is justified.Therefore, we would encourage the Working Groups and Sister Societies that form the Council on Basic Cardiovascular Science, as well as all interested individuals, to again contribute to this process in this year’s planning for the ESC Congress 2014. To allow you to submit your proposals we have extended the deadline to Friday 2 August.
Obviously, not all proposals cam make it to final acceptance, and some will be modified or merged with others on the same topic. But the quality of the final result is dictated by the efforts and skills of the contributors: 'Excellence in, Excellence out'. So, our thanks go again to all of you and we hope to see you at an ESC Congress where the basic science component will be very lively and of outstanding quality.
With our very best regards,
Barbara Casadei, Chair of the Council on Basic Cardiovascular Science Lina Badimon, Vice-Chair. Axel R. Pries, Past-Chair. Jeremy Pearson, Secretary
