Due to the global health issue related to the coronavirus outbreak, the Local Organising Committee together with the EDS Board and Executive bodies, have the regret to announce that this year’s EDS meeting Belgrade 2020 is postponed to 2021 in the same location.

This decision has been made to protect the health and well-being of our delegates, partners, faculty and staff. It is also based on current WHO advice and government information regarding travel and social distancing.

Further information on the exact date of the EDS Congress will be published on this website as soon as they become available.

We would like to wish you and your families the very best in the coming weeks and months and hope that you keep safe & well.
