Dear EUSEM members, dear friends, dear colleagues,

I would like to take this opportunity to inform you of the current developments of the European Emergency Medicine Congress in Lisbon #EUSEM21

With the Congress Organizing Committee and SPUME (Portuguese national society), we have been actively monitoring the situation in Portugal.
We understand that the cases for COVID are increasing in the country, but the number of hospitalizations is low.  We believe that by the end of October, near-normal activity, in the country and throughout Europe, will resume.

Therefore, we have decided that the EUSEM Congress in Lisbon will go ahead as a physical meeting until further notice. We are actively promoting delegates to attend the congress in Lisbon. However, as this is a hybrid meeting, there will be a virtual component for which delegates can register if they cannot attend the meeting physically. We will continue to monitor the situation, and for the latest information about Portugal, please consult the congress website on

I do hope that you will support us to promote the congress and to gather as many as possible Emergency Medicine professionals together in Lisbon. We have an exciting program in a beautiful city!

I look forward to seeing you all there,

Yours sincerely

Dr. Abo Khoury MD

EUSEM President
