ESR President welcomes all delegates to ECR 2020


By Boris Brkljačić, ESR President
It is my great pleasure to welcome you to the European Congress of Radiology, ECR 2020: the 32nd annual meeting of the European Society of Radiology, and the 26th to take place in Vienna. As the ESR has grown into a global society, the European Congress of Radiology has also grown to become a global congress, with attendees from more than 130 countries.

Congress Poster

Every year the ESR Office suggests several congress poster concepts, created by professional designers, to the Congress President and PPC members, which then select their favourite. The poster you can see here was the best of the proposed options.

It resembles Rembrandt’s artwork, with sharp light and dark contrast, and is in good accordance with the slogan for ECR 2020: ‘A Clear Vision for Radiology’. The small floating object represents artificial intelligence, which will be an important topic at the congress, and the names of the ECR 2020 ‘ESR meets’ countries are visible at the bottom of the poster. The 2020 poster contains fewer colours and illustrations compared to the 2019 poster and is concordant with the visual style of the ESR’s main scientific publication, the journal European Radiology.
