Published: 09 April 2020 Event News

The European Congress of Radiology (ECR) will be an on-line only event this year.

Defeated by the Covid-19 imposed restrictions, the European Society of Radiology (ESR) finally abandoned hopes of holding ECR 2020 in Vienna this year.

The digital alternative will be held 15-19 July, the same dates as when the physical event was planned to be held, following the postponement from March.

"It is with a heavy heart and much regret that the board of directors of the ESR has decided not to hold an onsite ECR in 2020," the ESR statement said.

"We have a social responsibility to our members, partners, staff, and the general public. In the current crisis, the ESR must lead by example, and it is clear that your safety will always be our number one priority and we sincerely hope for your understanding and support of our decision."

More details about the virtual conference, as well as refund information, will be posted on the congress website.
