The poster design for ECR 2019 is inspired by two concepts – the city of Genoa, hometown of the ESR President, and the fact that ECR 2019 will be the 25th European Congress of Radiology to take place in Vienna. Genoa is on the Mediterranean Sea, and has one of the largest aquariums in Europe. It is both an entertaining and a scientific institution that attracts many visitors, even from abroad.
Choosing the colour of the Mediterranean as the background, with a number of fish swimming in it, was an easy choice. But, if you look more in detail, you can see that each fish has been designed with the colours of one of the posters of the past ECRs and that they, together, delineate the number 25.
Furthermore, the number 25 at the top of the poster and the logo surrounding it are written with the same font used for the ECR posters of the first years. These details try to recall the past and to underline that the new congress is carrying on along the same lines as earlier ones. Again, the concept of continuity of ESR's activities over time (and over presidencies).
The next ECR congress will be held from February 27 – March 3, 2019 in Vienna, Austria.

Certificates of attendance and CME confirmations can now be downloaded from the MyUserArea.
The best scientific paper presentations of each topic have been identified by the subcommittees and session moderators. The selection criteria have comprised scientific content, quality of presentation and overall impression of the performance.
For the presenting authors of the best papers, ECR 2019 registration fees will be waived.

The ECR is an officially certified green meeting, which makes it the largest congress in Europe to receive the Austrian environmental certification. To achieve the certification, the congress had to ensure environmental sustainability in several different areas. In order to achieve the lowest possible CO² emissions from transport, congress participants are strongly encouraged to use environmental friendly means of transport on their trip to Vienna (please consult the Website of the Austrian train service) and to the Congress Center. Public transportation tickets for Vienna can be booked via the congress website.
By cooperating with two catering companies that also boast eco-friendly credentials, the congress could offer locally-sourced products and avoid the use of disposable plates and plastic bottles.
The congress programme can be accessed online for free via the interactive Programme Planner. For those who prefer the paper version, a printing company was contracted based on its ability to guarantee the highest printing quality while using recyclable paper from environmentally friendly and sustainably managed forests.
Through a major expansion of the ECR Online programme, ECR 2018 attracted 6,415 online viewers, a development that is very much in the spirit of green meetings. This particular project will be extended further over the coming years.
