      IMPORTANT - Coronavirus and Myocardial & Pericardial Diseases Meeting 2020

      Dear Members of the Myocardial & Pericardial Diseases community,

      We are sorry to inform you that the Myocardial and Pericardial Diseases Meeting 2020, the annual meeting of the European Society of Cardiology Working Group (ESC WG) on Myocardial & Pericardial Diseases, scheduled for 09-10 October 2020 in Turin, is cancelled. 

      The leadership of the ESC and the Working Group have been closely following the spread of COVID-19 and the travel restrictions imposed by many countries. Under the current circumstances, cancelling the 2020 meeting is the only responsible course of action.

      We wish you all the best in these difficult times and look forward to seeing you in Turin on 08-09 October 2021 for the next edition. The Working Group will be in contact with the members about upcoming online scientific activities.

      Kind regards

      On behalf of the ESC Working Group on Myocardial & Pericardial Diseases Nucleus
