Why a virtual congress?

It was decided to transform the 13th congress of the ECSVD into a fully virtual congress. This will offer the participants the possibility  for educational exchanges, scientific news and best practice updates while protecting the safety, health & well-being of all congress participants

Pre-recorded or live?

To ensure a high quality presentation, these are recorded in advance and then streamed during a session that is preceded by a live introduction. If possible, live questions will be answered.
Our goal is to make the virtual discussions as dynamic as possible and offer opportunities for interaction between speakers and delegates.
