Thank you for your contribution to the call for Interventional Sessions - ESC Congress 2014

Message from Prof. Marco Roffi, FESC and Dr Giulio Guagliumi, FESC, respectively Chair and Co-Chair of the EAPCI Scientific Programme Committee Chair




Following the call for pre-arranged session for the ESC Congress 2014 that ended end July, in the month of August the EAPCI Scientific Program Committee will grade all the 37 submitted sessions and during the ESC in Amsterdam we will meet to review and discuss the sessions in depth.

This in order to achieve the best possible acceptance rate by the ESC 2014 Congress Program Committee (CPC).

Of interest, for the first time at ESC 2014 there will be a new session format called “Case-Based Symposium”. We think that this format might be particularly suitable for sessions submitted by EAPCI because it allows to be very practical and at the same time a great degree of interactivity.
In addition, EAPCI will try to be active also in submitting session to the Focus program. Of note, in addition to the late breaking trials, at ESC 2013 will be presented three new ESC guidelines of particular interest for EAPCI, namely the one on diabetes, pre- diabetes and cardiovascular diseases, the one on arterial hypertension and the one on stable coronary artery disease.

The ESC 2013 will for sure be a great congress and EAPCI is proud of its contributions. We hope that acceptance rate of session submitted through the EAPCI Scientific Programme Committee for ESC 2014 will be even better than the one for 2013 (acceptance rate of 54%).

We can assure you that our committee will work hard to achieve this goal. Giulio and myself would like to take this opportunity to thank everybody who has submitted a session proposal for ESC Congress 2013 and / or 2014 and at the same time all the program committee members for their hard work. See you in Amsterdam!

This is the preliminary call for proposals for ESC Congress 2014 was organised by EAPCI.
A call for proposals from ESC Scientific Programme Department was sent on 30 July.
