Outline programme for the 9 th AECVP Biennial Meeting

You are warmly invited to the 9 th Biennial Meeting of the Association for European Cardiovascular Pathology will be held as a hybrid event, allowing people to attend in person in Cambridge, UK, or virtually online. The meeting will be held from 16 th to 18 th September 2021 and will be based at Fitzwilliam College, part of Cambridge University.
Due to social distancing, there is a limited number of places available in Cambridge. This will be kept under review as the pandemic situation changes, and more places may become available. If you register for a virtual attendance but later decide that you would like to come to Cambridge in person, you can upgrade for the price difference at the time you first booked – so if you make an early registration for virtual attendance, you will only be asked to pay the difference for early live registration. This is subject to spaces being available. The last date for live in person registration is 31 st August 2021.
This programme is preliminary while we reconfirm speakers, so may be subject to changes. All times are UK time (British Summer Time, which is GMT +1 hour).
NEW for this year: we have organised sessions on key topics in cardiac pathology in association with the UK Cardiac Pathology Network. These are topics that will be of particular interest to the general surgical and autopsy pathologist and pathologists in training, but with plenty of talking points for the experienced cardiac pathologist.
