Welcome to the ISCEV LVIII th Symposium

World Wide Web
September 14-16, 2020


Dear members of the ISCEV family,
Without surprise, results of our recent survey revealed that there is a tremendous desire from our members and friends to meet virtually this year. Consequently, the ISCEV 2020 Organizing Committee is already at work to put together a virtual Symposium that will be (and feel) as close as possible to what the face-to-face meeting would have been (minus the sea, sand and sun), with a mix of lived and streamed sessions, in the true ISCEV tradition and spirit. The virtual meeting will take place from September 14-16, 2020 and details on the scientific and social programs, including the traditional ISCEV Olympics, will be available soon.

We are currently exploring all the possibilities available with potential web conferencing providers and for that reason we cannot yet provide you with an estimate of the registration fees that will be requested from you. However, rest reassured that we will do our best to make it fit within the cost bracket that you suggested through the survey.

In the interim, those of you who already have an abstract to submit, please do so. Those of you who are still considering, you still have some time left as we have revised the abstract deadline to JULY, 1st 2020. Finally, for those who have already submitted an abstract, no need to do it again. Your abstract was automatically transferred to this new website.

We hope that you will enthusiastically seize the occasion to be part of the Ist ISCEV Virtual Symposium. Who knows, maybe one day you will be proud to say: “I was there”

We are confident that it will be a great meeting to remember.

ISCEV 2020 Organizing Committee: Allison L. Dorfman, Anna Polosa, Mercedes Gauthier, Julie Racine, Shasha Lv, Michelle McKerral, Jacqueline Orquin, Marie-Sylvie Roy, Marc Hébert, Dave St-Amour, François Tremblay, Ruth Hamilton, Karen Holopigian, Pierre Lachapelle and Mitch Brigell (ISCEV Symposium Coordinator).
