We would like to update you on ECIO and how we are planning to proceed in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. As you all know, in the spring we had to postpone ECIO 2020 to November. At that time, we were hopeful that we could meet again in the fall to discuss the latest data and share our experience with a community that we have all come to appreciate so much.
Unfortunately, COVID-19 is still far from being contained and the uncertainty involved in planning a major in-person event at this point has given us no choice but to take the difficult decision that ECIO 2020 will not take place as a physical meeting. It is with heavy hearts that we have to make this announcement, not only as physicians keen to push our specialty, but also as colleagues and friends looking forward to meeting you again soon in person.
However, we are hopeful that ECIO 2021 will take place as planned from April 11-14 in Stockholm. If you were already registered for ECIO 2020, your registration will be automatically transfered to ECIO 2021. If you have any questions, please don’t hestitate to contact [email protected].
To ensure continued education in our specialty until then, much of the ECIO 2020 programme has been transferred to a series of online webinars which will be livestreamed in four half-day courses from November 2020 to February 2021 and will include pre-recorded presentations in live sessions as well as on-demand content.
We appreciate your continued support for ECIO and your input to our community and look forward to welcoming you to our webinars and of course an exciting ECIO 2021 from April 11-14 in Stockholm!
