ESICM has made the decision to make the LIVES 2020 Annual Meeting an entirely virtual event, and we are currently in the processes of transforming the programme to a virtual format.

The programme will be presented in a wide variety of formats – symposia, workshops, case presentations and case discussions. Alongside the dynamic debates and interactive demonstrations, we will provide a wide range of resources on the LIVES Digital 2020 Media Library that can be accessed and viewed on-demand. This will give all delegates, wherever they may be in the world, the flexibility to attend all the key presentations at a time that suits them.

The ESICM LIVES Congress is above all an opportunity for interaction and networking, and LIVES Digital 2020 will be no exception. We will have 7 broadcasting channels at our disposal, allowing a wide-ranging programme of interactive debates, demonstration events, and dynamic presentations/discussions to be sent out live to all the corners of the globe.

An application will be made to the UEMS EACCME® for CME accreditation of this event.
