The Board Meeting of the European Association of Nuclear Medicine has recently agreed to continue the cooperation with Barcelona and Vienna, with CCIB in Barcelona and the Austria Center Vienna in Vienna being the respective venues. During that meeting, which took place in October 2017 in Vienna, it was decided that after 2016 and 2019, the 2022 and 2025 Congresses will take place in Barcelona again, and Vienna will be the host city in 2023 and 2026 (after 2017 and 2020).
The congress normally attracts more than 6,300 participants, who are offered more than 2,000 scientific abstracts and almost 160 sessions. The Review Centre, one of the two novelties of the congress, offers the opportunity to view a presentation in case a participant missed it and can ask directly questions to the presenters. Young researchers and scientists have the possibility to present their papers in an own session within the framework of the European Congress as part of the “Under 30’s session” – the second new element of the congress.
Kristoff Muylle, President of the Europan Association of Nuclear Medicine: “We started our longterm cooperation with Barcelona and Vienna with the congresses 2016 and 2017 and the overall positive impact for us as an association but also for our participants made it easy for the Board to confirm the cooperation until 2026 with both cities.”
