European Society of Cardiology Congress 2013

Amsterdam RAI
Europaplein 2-22
1078 GZ Amsterdam
The Netherlands

31 Aug 2013 - 04 Sep 2013

 We invite you to join us in the preparations of this unique event for all cardiologists around the world. 

The chosen spotlight of the congress is “The Heart interacting with Systemic Organs”. Only through concerted efforts can we continue to bring further improvements to patient care. By choosing the interaction between the heart and other organs as its 2013 congress spotlight, the ESC will encourage critical discussion of new research and techniques with other organ experts and their transfer into clinical medicine.

As always, the scientific programme will highlight the most relevant issues in the diagnosis, management and treatment of cardiovascular disease, ranging from basic to clinical and population research. More than ever, the ESC Congress is the forum at which researchers aspire to present their work. With over 9,600 abstracts submitted in 2012, the ESC Congress is a true representation of scientific developments in the field.  Research from investigators around the world will be presented throughout the programme and in the form of special lectures and interactive education sessions. 

The Congress Programme Committee, the ESC Working Groups, Associations and National Societies are already working with colleagues from across the globe on the programme. A special track on the first day for general practitioners, primary care physicians and nurses, will be maintained on popular demand. The young investigator project, known as “ESC Cardiologists of Tomorrow” continues to grow from strength to strength and many other interesting topics, programmes and new session formats are set to emerge for this congress edition in Amsterdam. 

This view would not be complete without the contributions of the healthcare industry. The technical exhibition, and industry educational sessions continue to break the new ground in terms of quality education and we acknowledge their ongoing support.


We encourage you to plan your experience at the ESC Congress 2013 as we do, in the finest detail, starting now. Submit your abstracts and make your contribution to the advancement of collaboration knowledge and patient care.
