In view of the ongoing spread of COVID-19 across the world and its growing global impact, the board of directors of the European Society of Radiology (Vienna) has decided not to hold an onsite European Congress of Radiology (ECR) in 2020. Instead, ECR 2020 will go ahead as an online congress to ensure a safe experience for its members, partners, staff and the general public.

Due to the spread of COVID-19 in Europe, the European Society of Radiology had earlier decided to postpone ECR 2020 until July. However, since then, the outbreak has worsened, with Europe becoming the epicenter of the global pandemic. Public health authorities in Austria, as well as much of the rest of the world, have restricted large meetings and enforced travel bans, with no official indication as to when these restrictions will be lifted. Almost all specialty and subspecialty societies and other congress organizers have already, or will shortly, cancel their meetings for 2020.
