During ESC Congress, the Working Group on Pulmonary Circulation and Right Ventricular Function holds its General Assembly to present achieved and upcoming activities to its members.
This is also the opportunity to award 4 to 6 young researchers (under 36) who submitted the best abstracts on Pulmonary Hypertension/Circulation and the best abstracts on Pulmonary Embolism.
Abstracts ranking is based on the marks awarded by the ESC abstract reviewers and by the Working Group leadership.
