The 30th Annual Conference of the European Wound Management Association, EWMA 2020 will be a fully virtual conference, taking place on 18–19 November 2020.
The Association states: “The health and safety of our attendees, partners, vendors and staff is our priority. With the on-going COVID situation in mind, the EWMA Council and the TVS [Tissue Viability Society] have made the decision to transform EWMA 2020 to a Virtual Conference. We do not yet have all details in place, but plan for a rich and varied online experience.”
Lectures, sessions, and symposia will all be available online. According to EWMA, “a full programme with more than 80 sessions, including EWMA key sessions, workshops, ask the professor sessions, and industry symposia, will be available for you to choose from”.
Selected sessions will be available to view on-demand for a limited timeframe after the conference. Additionally, attendees can earn continuing medical education (CME) points through their participation in the scientific programme.
The society also say there will be the possibility for “networking and debate”, writing in their press release: “Join the live discussions and write your questions to the speaker and panel during the sessions.”
There will also be a virtual exhibition hall, where visitors can “explore the new developments and interact with industry representatives”, according to an EWMA press release.
Registration for the EWMA 2020 Virtual Conference will open in a few months, but you can find the registration prices for the Virtual Conference here.
