Due to the continued global escalation of COVID-19 and our careful evaluation of evolving government advisories, available alternatives and most importantly the health and well-being of our attendees, the Heart Rhythm Society Board of Trustees regrets to announce the 2020 Heart Rhythm Scientific Sessions (#HRS2020) scheduled for May 6-9, 2020, in San Diego, CA is cancelled.
The Society thanks the Scientific Sessions Program Committee, Faculty, Abstract Presenters, our Exhibitors, Sponsors, and Partners along with countless others for their commitment to Heart Rhythm Scientific Sessions.
Though we will not be meeting in person this year, we will be offering many new digital programs through our online learning platform Heart Rhythm 365 over the next few months including the #HRS2020 abstract eposter catalog, Late-Breaking Clinical Trials sessions, and the Young Investigator Awards session beginning May 6th.
Abstracts and Late-Breaking Clinical Trials
Recognizing the extraordinary effort faculty and presenters have put into preparing for the Scientific Sessions, HRS will publish accepted #HRS2020 abstracts as planned in a supplement to the May issue of the Heart Rhythm Journal. In lieu of in-person presentations, abstract presentations will be collected digitally and made available on Heart Rhythm 365. Late-Breaking Clinical Trial sessions will also be uploaded as webinars on Heart Rhythm 365.
If you registered to attend #HRS2020, you will receive an email from our registration vendor in the next week with the option to request a full refund minus any membership dues and/or donations paid with your registration. Please be patient and allow up to 90 days for these refunds to be processed. If you do not reply to the registration email by April 30, we will process your refund at that time.
For those who reserved hotel rooms through onPeak, the official hotel provider of #HRS2020, HRS will cancel those reservations on your behalf — no action is required on your part. If you made reservations on your own, please contact the hotel or third-party you utilized.
