Frequently Asked Questions on the New ESC 365
What is ESC 365?
ESC 365 is the online platform where you can find all available resources from the ESC Family of Congresses.
Can’t attend all the presentations from an ESC organised congress? Don’t worry: browse ESC 365 to watch the presentations you missed or replay those of interest.
Note: “ESC 365” replaces “ESC Congress 365”, an online platform that presented resources from ESC Congress editions only, and replaces the “Scientific Programme Online” (SPO) for specialty congresses.

Resources can consist of abstracts, slides/e-posters, videos, reports and ESC TV interviews (or Industry Digests for industry presentations)

On the results page, you will then be able to refine your search (by year, by session type, by resource type and by topic).
Finally, you can sort the results by relevance, year or title.

- Type the author’s name in the search bar from the home page
- You may then refine your search by selecting ‘Abstract’ in the ‘Resource type’ tab
- The citation of the abstracts is available on the abstract itself.
- Look for the presentation on the New ESC 365 then open the “abstract” resource: the citation will be mentioned there.
Note:Citation of the abstracts for ESC Congress 2019 will be available early October.
- Select the congress at which the presentation took place
- The best way to find the presentation you are looking for is to know the presenter or author(s)’s name(s), and then type it in the search bar
- Refine your results by selecting the year when it was presented.
If you don’t have this information, you can look for this session’s title via the Scientific Programme & Planner which is organised by day and timeslots.

A congress resource could be:
- An abstract/e-Poster
- A presentation slide set
- A video (slides synchronised with the audio & video feeds of the speaker: this technology recreates the live session experience) – note videos cannot be downloaded
- An ESC TV interview (unbiased scientific opinion on key sessions and presentations from some of the most well-known experts) or an Industry Digest for industry presentations
- A report.
- A greyed out resource pictogram indicates that the resource is not available (either not available for this kind of presentation, or just not available yet i.e. try again in a few days’ time or that the authors/presenters have not granted the European Society of Cardiology the rights to use the content for educational purposes. In this latter case there will be a note specifying: “The ESC does not have the copyright for the slides and video of this presentation”)
- A green pictogram indicates that the resource is available on the platform.
Most of the resources are available within 24 hours after presentation.
Abstracts are available (from 1 week prior to the congress) only for abstract based presentations.
An abstract may not be available if it is embargoed; in this case the abstract will be released after the presentation takes place.
The e-poster/slidset/video are available only if the presenter has submitted and granted copyrights to ESC. If it is not the case, there will be a note specifying: "The ESC does not have the copyright for the slides and video of this presentation."

Two scenarios if you are NOT signed in:

This means the resources for this presentation are open for all during that time. You simply need to sign in in order to consult any resource that is not an abstract.
Three possible scenarios if you are signed in:
