Online Xperience FAQ
Yes, the congress is taking place between 15-18 June 2021. We will no longer aim to meet in person in Athens. The congress will be an online Xperience. We are essentially bringing the congress to you by giving you access to the ESPNIC 2021 virtual world from wherever you are.
Yes, we will contact all registered participants who were planning to join us in Athens.
Yes, the virtual format allows us to bring you the programme at the most affordable rates ever. Registration for ESPNIC 2021: An Online Xperience will shortly reopen with reduced registration fees. This is a great chance to see what the ESPNIC Xperience is all about. Stay informed here.
We plan to deliver as many live sessions as possible. A portion of the programme will be pre-recorded and available on demand to view whenever you choose.
The undeniable benefit of the virtual format is that everything is recorded and accessible after the live programme. This means that you can take part live, watch again later, and then re-watch the most important sections according to your areas of interest.
We were thrilled to receive over 400 abstract submissions for ESPNIC 2021 Xperience. We are now building a format that allows for the accepted abstracts to be published, indexed, and made accessible for discussion, questions, collaborative recommendations, etc.
Abstract notification letters for the first round of abstract submission with more information to help you navigate your experience will be sent out at the start of March.
Late breaking abstract submission will re-open for an additional period and will remain open until 30 March 2021. Stay informed here.
A BIG part of the ESPNIC Xperience is the hands-on training – clearly impossible to replicate in an online Xperience. However, we have taken the decision to adopt a virtual format now so that we have time to develop the best possible solution for hands-on Xperience. Pre-recorded demonstrations from the ICU, breakout small group discussions, and other innovative ways to teach and guide across a virtual environment are on the table. Look out for more details in the coming months.
