Postponement ECR 2020

Dear Congress Participant,
Dear Friend,

ECR 2020 is postponed to July 15–19, 2020 – please mark your calendars!

Please note that this postponement is a fully equivalent replacement for the planned event originally scheduled for March 11–15.

It goes without saying that registration fees for the event as well as for the online services will remain in place for the new congress date. Registration to the ECR 2020 remains open.

After careful evaluation of the spreading corona virus epidemic, and considering the recent statements issued by the WHO and the ECDC, and the related evolving world-wide restrictions and crisis, the ESR was forced to make this decision. Above all, we have analysed the recommendations from the Austrian health authorities for large-scale events and came to the conclusion that we are not in a position to fulfil their requirements and guarantee a safe congress for our participants and industry partners at this time. The safety, health and well-being of our delegates and partners will always be the highest priority for the ESR.

We would like to express our sincere thanks to our participants and industry partners for their understanding, continuous support and flexibility. The majority of our industry partners have already expressed their ongoing commitment and are fully on board for ECR 2020 in July.

Please rest assured that in these turbulent and challenging times, the entire ESR and ECR team are doing their best to respond to any query at the earliest possible time and to make ECR 2020 a spectacular and memorable event for all.

We are already looking forward to welcoming you to Vienna in July!

Yours sincerely,

Boris Brkljačić, ESR President

Poster Exhibition at ECR 2020

Posters at ECR 2020

To present a poster at ECR, a poster abstract needs to be submitted. After acceptance, full posters have to be uploaded to the EPOS database. All posters, of which the presenting author is registered for the congress, are part of the ECR Scientific Programme, and can also be published permanently on EPOS™.

During upload, all submitters can choose between onsite only presentation (during the congress) and additional permanent publication of the poster on the EPOS database.


Abstract submission is closed.

Posters must be uploaded to EPOS™ by January 20, 2020.


All accepted posters are presented electronically in EPOS™ (no paper printouts).

Invitations for poster upload for accepted abstracts will be sent out at the beginning of December.

EPOS Online Viewing

In 2003, ECR took a bold step and introduced an all-electronic scientific exhibition using EPOS™, the Electronic Presentation Online System, thus setting new standards in the medical meeting industry.

Visit the largest database of radiological posters, containing more than 30,000 posters from ECR 2003 onwards, as well as RANZCR, SERAM, ESSR, ESTI, ESCR and EuroSafe Imaging.

In special Language Sessions the authors can present their work in their mother tongue.

All presentations will be broadcast online via the ECR Live streaming service and recorded for ESR Connect.
