Dear Friends and Colleagues,

Given the COVID-19 pandemia, ESSD has decided to hold an Online Meeting this year, so there will be no Onsite meeting in Girona in 2020.

Please, keep sending your abstracts. Abstract submission deadline has been extended until July 4th, all abstracts received will be reviewed and those of you who get an oral or a poster presentation will be able to record it and present it in the online meeting. We open a new topic: Dysphagia during COVID-19.

Registration fees and dates will be revised and adapted to the online meeting. Details will be put up on the website.

Pre-congress courses planned for Girona 2020 will be cancelled and the online meeting programme will be different.

We will keep you informed through our main website closer to the event.

Stay safe,
