LIVES will be an online, digital meeting. Instead of us meeting at a physical location this year for our annual congress, which had been previously planned for Copenhagen, we will now hold the congress completely virtually and online. ​More information on how to access the digital congress will come later on.

Please note that the platform, Video On Demand, and Exhibition can be accessed at any time. Still, our support and live sessions will only be available at the times indicated below:

Sunday 03 Oct Monday 04 Oct Tuesday 05 Oct Wednesday 06 Oct
Delegate Support 14:00 - 18:00 07:00 - 18:00 08:00 - 18:00 08:00 - 16:00

You will have access to all scientific sessions and on-demand recordings. You will also receive access to the digital exhibition, be able to claim CME credits, review the e-posters, and connect with peers, just as in a physical congress.​

Links and all necessary information on how to access LIVES online will be emailed to you right before the start of the congress.  ​

You will be able to review the sessions and visit the virtual exhibition via the link sent to you (i.e., from the virtual platform) throughout the 6 months following the congress.

After that period, the recordings can be accessed via the e-LIVES library on our website.

You can only connect on one device.

CME credits can be claimed for participation during the 4-DAY LIVE congress (03-06 October) and for the recorded sessions during or after these dates. The EACCME accreditation for recorded sessions will be valid for a period of three months from the starting date of the event. After three months, viewers will not be entitled to receive EACCME credits anymore for viewing the recorded event.

To claim your CME credits you need first to complete a short questionnaire about your LIVES Digital experience, which you will receive by email. The CME certificate will then be available to download and/or print.
