Welcome to Vienna!
Dear ESS family and sympathizers,
After a four-year long pause caused by the COVID-19, we finally have a chance to meet again face-to-face - our European Shock Society (ESS) congress is back in business! The 20th ESS congress is unique as it marks the 40th anniversary of the ESS existence. Yet again, after successful 2005 and 2013 editions, we are inviting you to the European crossroads – Vienna.
To appropriately mark this special occasion, we located the congress in an elegant intellectual ambience of the University of Vienna. Additionally, we have organized a program truly worthy of such an anniversary – please review the details of the scientific and social events provided on this website.
Personally, I am very thrilled about the “40 Years of ESS: Reminiscences” round-table that will bring together the past ESS presidents – nearly all have confirmed their presence.
As before, this biennial event focuses on merging translational sciences with clinical needs in the area of critical care illnesses. We are honored to welcome in Vienna numerous renowned scientists including Alberto Mantovani as the keynote presenter. Our speakers, who come from all corners of the European continent (and beyond), will ensure an exciting thematic diversity and top meritorious quality.
As always, we have put an utmost effort to make our ESS congress junior-friendly. It features several events specifically oriented toward students and junior scientists including the pre-congress ESS Summer School and the European New Investigator Award Competition. There will also be ample opportunities for meritorious recognition and presentation of research findings.
It goes without saying that we are very much looking forward to your participation in this scientifically important and enjoyable event in the beautiful city of Vienna. See you ‘all in September!
My sincere regards,
ESS President & Congress Organizer
