The EACTS Annual Meeting is the largest event for the cardiothoracic community, offering an exciting opportunity to explore new scientific insights, learn about the latest innovations in cardio-thoracic surgery and importantly, take part in some stimulating debates alongside global experts.

A hybrid Annual Meeting 

This year we continue to break new boundaries by offering a hybrid Annual Meeting in Barcelona allowing delegates to attend in-person, subject to COVID-19 restrictions, or online via our new virtual platform. 

 Commencing on Wednesday 13 October with a full day showcasing new technology and techniques in our Techno-College sessions, our world-class science will continue over the next 3 days (14-16 October).  

 There will be a packed programme of education and discussion ranging from plenary sessions covering the latest guidelines and clinical trials to informative debate through professional challenge, focus and abstract sessions and interactive hands-on training.  We look forward to sharing more details soon. 

Please join us at the 35th EACTS Annual Meeting to explore, discover, educate, and shape the future of cardiothoracic surgery.​ 

Registration will open in June 2021.
