Welcome Message

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,
In 2012, the Czech Society of Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care Medicine put forward a bid for Prague as the venue for the 17th WFSA World Congress of Anaesthesiologists in the year 2020. I am proud to announce that during WCA2012 in Buenos Aires, Argentina, the Venue Committee had chosen Prague, Czech Republic, as the site for WCA2020. Their decision was publicly announced during the Closing Ceremony. The joy and exultation of our delegation after the announcement shall remain for years to come.

Prague is the seat of Charles University, the oldest university in Central and Eastern Europe. Founded in 1348 the university has become the centre of education and science for the whole region, where the discipline of anaesthesiology also has a long tradition. It should be noted that the first general anaesthesia in Prague was ad­minis­tered as early as February 7, 1847 and the First Department of Anaesthesia was set up in the Central Military Hospital in 1948.

The city has extensive experience in hosting congresses. It has a large exhibition centre, around 70,000 hotel beds and easy flight connections to all main airports worldwide. Also, several highways and train lines conveniently connect Prague to its neighboring countries.

I have the privilege to cordially invite you to the 17th WFSA World Congress of Anaesthesiologists in Prague in 2020, not only for an ex­change of scientific information, education and meeting friends, but also to experi­ence the hospitality our country has to offer. It is my firm belief that your trip to Prague will be the experience of a lifetime.

We are looking forward to meeting you in Prague during September 5th–9th, 2020.


Prof. Karel Cvachovec
President of the Czech Society of Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care Medicine

Dear Colleagues,
CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)
The organisers of the World Congress of Anaesthesiologists 2020, scheduled for September 5 - 9 in Prague, Czech Republic, are closely monitoring the situation regarding the outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19) which has now been declared a pandemic.

The health and wellbeing of our colleagues and patients are paramount and all measures and regulations recommended or imposed by the World Health Organisation (WHO) as well as by the Czech Ministry of Health are being implemented. We are especially conscious of the outstanding and essential role of anaesthesiologists caring for patients with COVID-19 throughout the health system, including intensive care, and of our responsibility to ensure that all Congress participants are safe and secure.

At this time, and with over 5 months to go until the Congress, the preparations for WCA 2020 continue as planned. Of course we will constantly monitor this very difficult situation and will issue further information on a regular basis. Please watch this page for announcements.

Advice for the public can be found here.
Guidance for anaesthesia and perioperative care providers can be found here.
Should you have more specific questions kindly address them to wcaprague2020@guarant.cz and they will be answered as soon as possible.
We look forward to welcoming you to Prague.
