Dear friends,

We are proud and honored to welcome you to the 54th Annual Meeting of the Association for European Paediatric and Congenital Cardiology in Gothenburg, Sweden on May 25-28, 2021.

As you all know, the meeting was originally planned for May 2020 but had to be cancelled due to the severe Covid-19 pandemic. A lot of virtual activities have developed during the pandemic and web-based education and meetings have been a substitute for traditional meetings. However, meeting old and new friends involved in similar daily practice as your own improves scientific and human exchange and the Annual Meetings of AEPC have become well attended and highly valued occasions.

Therefore, we are deeply grateful for all efforts and support from individuals, organizations, and companies that have made it possible for us to arrange the meeting in May 2021 instead. We want to express our sincere gratitude to the team in Geneva, making it possible to complete and realize the upcoming meeting already planned in great detail.

This meeting has a long tradition of bringing together not only Paediatric Cardiologists but also specialists from all the other disciplines dedicated to the care of patients with congenital heart disease with delegates coming not only from Europe but from around the world. The number of participants has steadily increased during the last years, not the least due to the involvement of colleagues from allied professions, such as nurses, technicians, social workers and psychologists. The venue of the meeting is at the Swedish Exhibition Centre, centrally located in Gothenburg, with excellent meeting facilities.

We welcome you all to meet in real life, in this time more important than ever before!

On behalf of the Local Organising Committees from Lund and Gothenburg
