EAS CONGRESS 2020: OUTSTANDING SCIENCE, NOW IN AN INNOVATIVE VIRTUAL FORMAT
The European Atherosclerosis Society leadership have been monitoring the response to the current pandemic both in Switzerland and worldwide. Our hope had been, with lifting of restrictions, to have a face to face meeting. Taking into account the recent update of Swiss regulations for meetings and travel, specifically around the Geneva area, we have concluded that it will not be possible for EAS Congress 2020 to take place as a face to face meeting in Geneva as planned. This decision has been made out of consideration for the safety and well-being of all involved.
The 88th EAS Congress is now transformed into a virtual event. The Congress dates remain the same: October 04-07, 2020, and all the elements of our outstanding scientific programme will be presented. What is different, then, is a unique virtual experience, with innovative formats that allow you to participate, interact and experience the programme online.
