We are sorry to inform you that Euroson 2020 is cancelled.
In light of the current uncertainty around the COVID-19 pandemic, the Euroson 2020 Local Organizing Committee has made the very difficult and unprecedented decision to cancel the upcoming Euroson 2020, that was to be held 11th-13th of June 2020 in Bergen, Norway.
The Norwegian Society of Ultrasound and Diagnostics (NFUD), The Norwegian National Advisory Unit on Ultrasound in Gastroenterology (NCUG) and SonoScandinavia are devastated by this decision. However, we see it as the only viable option given the predominant disruption and uncertainty caused by the current pandemic.
Our decision was made in accordance with the Norwegian Government’s mandate for all non-essential gatherings of more than 500 people to be cancelled, and especially warning of gatherings that include health care professionals.
It is heartbreaking to us all that we will not be able to welcome you to Euroson 2020 in Bergen, and we would like to thank you for your efforts- they have not been wasted.
As a consequence of the cancellation NFUD and NCUG stand before a significant economic loss. We still do not have all answers to practicalities concerning refund of tickets purchased.
As a first step we would recommend you reach out to your transporting company or insurance company for refund of tickets.
In the weeks to follow, our PCO and we hope to have more specific advice concerning practicalities, and we ask for your understanding and appreciate your patience.
Furthermore, we are working on potential alternatives for all of you that have submitted abstracts, and we will update you if, and as soon as we have found a solution and concluded with our collaborating partners.
On behalf of the Local Organizing Committee we deeply regret any inconvenience and disappointment caused by cancellation of Euroson 2020, and we share your disappointment.
However, we believe this is the most responsible course of action to protect the health and well-being of attendees and the patients they serve, presenters, exhibitiors, staff, vendors and all those engaged in the conference. The safety and health of you will always be our first priority.
We have been overwhelmed by the interest in this years’ event and we would like to thank our colleagues on the Local Organizing Committee and the respective program planning committees for all the hard work and effort dedicated to this meeting over the past 3 years.

A FEW WORDS
About the event organizers
Only one National Society of Ultrasound in Medicine, that of the German Democratic Republic, was in existence at the time of the first World Congress held in Vienna, 1969. Two years later there were as many as 8, and the need was felt to join them to a Federation. Such an organization would be in a better position to collaborate on an international base with the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine as well as with the Japanese and the Australian Societies and to better represent the European ultrasonic community in the World Federation to be founded. This idea was strongly supported by SIDUO which had been formed, as the first international ultrasonic society, as early as 1964. It was the Swiss Working Group of Diagnostic Ultrasound which, after extensive correspondence with its sister societies, sponsored the foundation meeting.
This will be the 32nd Euroson conference organized by EFSUMB.

Grieghallen, Edvard Griegsplass 1, 5015 Bergen
Grieghallen has been a landmark in Bergen since 1978 and has housed major events such as the Eurovision Song Contest
and the annual Festspillene i Bergen (Bergen International Festival). In addition, Grieghallen is a fully developed course and conference centre right in the heart of the city.
Founded more than 900 years ago, Bergen has roots to the Viking Age and beyond. As one of the main offices of the Hanseatic League, Bergen was for several hundred years the centre of prosperous trade between Norway and the rest of Europe. Bryggen, («The Hanseatic Wharf») is the most obvious remnant from this time, and is today home to many of the city’s restaurants, pubs, craft shops and historical museums.
Bergen is famous for the seven mountains surrounding the city centre, the Hanseatic Wharf, the fish market, and one of Norway’s biggest cultural events, the Bergen International Festival, which is held there each year.
