EAPS 2020 congress is going virtual on 16-19 October 2020

The COVID-19 pandemic has challenged our model of face-to-face meetings as authorities have imposed travel restrictions and physical distancing which are increasingly stringent.

To adapt to the current situation, the EAPS board has decided to transform the 8th Congress of the European Academy of Paediatric Societies (EAPS 2020) into a fully virtual event that will offer the community the possibility for educational exchanges, scientific news and best practice updates while protecting the safety, health, and well-being of all congress participants.

The virtual congress will take place between 16-19 October 2020. Virtual sessions will allow for live interaction, and will be available on-demand in the weeks following the congress.

In this time of uncertainty, we look to transform this crisis into a nеw opportunity, one that will open a wide and ongoing discussion on our collective local and national experiences and challenges in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic, especially with regard to our patients. We are working hard to make this online platform a relevant and effective communication channel with positive effects reaching far beyond the congress.

It is our goal that this virtual congress will continue to meet the needs of the EAPS community and to ensure a viable future. Registered participants will still be eligible to receive the number of CME credits attributed to the virtual meeting, and authors whose abstracts were accepted will be published in the digital abstract book.

We thank you in advance for your support in making the EAPS 2020 Virtual Congress a success!

Warmest Regards,

EAPS Organising Committee
