New Workshops Deadline
Following the ever-changing realities that we are facing with COVID-19, the Scientific Program Committee Executive has made the decision to extend the deadline for Workshop submissions for CCC 2020 until Monday, May 4, 2020.
Our team at CCS is carefully monitoring the situation and recognize that many of our members are directly impacted by clinic and office closures as well as increased patient demands. We hope that this extra time will alleviate some immediate pressure and give you a bit more time to adjust to the precarious reality that is COVID-19.
COVID-19 and the CCC2020
As of March 11, 2020, the Canadian Cardiovascular Congress in Edmonton from October 22 to 25 is set to proceed as planned.
The public health risk associated with COVID-19 has been assessed by the Public Health Agency of Canada as low for the general population in Canada but cautions this could change rapidly. As such, we’re developing contingency plans so that we’re prepared for various possible scenarios.
We look forward to Congress every year as an important opportunity to bring the Canadian cardiovascular community together. We’re looking into various options including a modified in-person meeting or virtual delivery, so that we don’t miss the chance to connect with each other.
The health and wellbeing of our members, staff, attendees, suppliers and industry supporters is a top priority. CCS will provide updates on our Congress plans as the situation evolves.
The 2020 Canadian Cardiovascular Congress
Thursday, October 22 to Sunday, October 25
Edmonton Convention Centre
CCC is one of Canada’s longest running medical meeting for a reason.
It`s the most essential networking event of the year in the cardiovascular space and the best way to stay up to date on the latest Canadian research, policy and practice in the field.
Welcome to Edmonton
We throw axes for fun, barbecue in blizzards, run with dinosaurs and camp with bison.
From the continent's first, biggest and wildest Fringe Theatre Festival to a shopping mall that at one time had more submarines than the Canadian navy, Edmontonians have never been afraid to do things a little differently.
Why is Edmonton different? There are theories. Maybe it's our northern home, where for years we've learned to make our own fun. Perhaps it's our legacy of entrepreneurs dreaming up oddities: deep freezer races, winter patios and surfing indoors. Perhaps it's the foundation of natural beauty, from which we've built something great. Take your taste buds on a journey to some of the hottest craft beer taprooms and hyper-local bistros, experience the glory of the northern lights from our dark sky preserves, or cruise through North America's largest stretch of urban parkland. There's a uniqueness to how Edmontonians do ordinary things, and we welcome you to be a part of it.
"CCC continues to grow and adapt to the changing needs of the Canadian cardiovascular community. CCC 2020 is bringing that innovation to Edmonton, a city that`s also growing and adapting to a changing world. Come to CCC 2020 for the best cardiovascular event of the year!"
