2021 European Symposium

Due to the current COVID-19 situation in Europe, we again need to POSTPONE the 2021 European Symposium in Florence. We will return to this venue, the FH Grand Mediterraneo Hotel, on June 08-11, 2023 to avoid the possibility of remaining COVID restrictions in Italy next year.

A LIVE meeting in Europe is being planned for June 9-12, 2022. Several venues are under consideration to ensure that a full-capacity symposium may be convened.

In the meantime, we announce the 2021 AECOS Europe Webinar Series. I along with Program Chairs Francesco Carones, MD and Sheraz Daya, MD are finalizing a very exciting and dynamic program. This will be a LIVE webinar series – no prerecorded content. The series will consist of 2 online sessions convened on Saturday, June 26 and Saturday, July 10, 2021. Each will be 2-hours beginning at 16:00 and ending at 18:00 (Central Europe Time). Please mark your calendars today! The full meeting program will follow shortly, and although registration is required there is no charge for participation. As always, membership is not a requirement for participation in any AECOS meetings or webinars. The 2021 AECOS Europe Webinar Series will be recorded and publicly posted on the AECOS website. I hope you will be able to join and participate in the lively discussions.
Erik Mertens, MD
AECOS Europe President
