2020 Annual Scientific Meeting

Unfortunately the difficult decision to postpone the 2020 Joint Annual Scientific Meeting has been made, in light of the current climate of Covid-19 and restrictions on travel and group gatherings that have been imposed. While this is of course disappointing I am pleased to be able to let you know that we will run the meeting at approximately the same time next year. Exact dates and further details will be made available as soon as they are confirmed. In addition to holding the Joint Annual Scientific Meeting in 2021 each society will also be looking at potential virtual engagement strategies in 2020 as the situation unfolds.


The 2020 Annual Scientific Meeting will be held in conjunction with Australian Vascular Biology Society (AVBS) and the Australian Atherosclerosis Society (AAS) after the huge success of the joint meeting in Hobart in 2016 and 2018. This year the meeting will be held at the RACV Club in Melbourne from the 1st-4th December 2020 and will incorporate several international speakers, as well as a host of experts from around the country covering both clinical and research topics across a wealth of areas.

Registration and Abstract Submission will open the 1st of May.
