Why is the Congress being postponed?
In light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the WFSA Board and WCA Local Organising Committee have decided to reschedule the 17th WFSA World Congress of Anaesthesiologists. We made this decision after careful consideration of our first and overriding priority: the health and wellbeing of all Congress participants.

When will the rescheduled Congress dates be?
The event was due to be held in Prague, Czech Republic from September 5 to 9, 2020, and is now planned to take place from September 1 to 5, 2021 in the same location.

Do you want to stay with us and attend WCA 2021 on the new dates? Great! We offer you:
  • Free name change up to June 30, 2021
  • Accompanying person – free entrance to Opening Ceremony and Welcome Cocktail
  • Free access to video and online presentation on demand
  • Social events with the early bird prices
  • On line publishing or presentation option 2020
No need to re-confirm your attendance.

Unless the Congress Secretariat is informed about the cancellation of the registration by March 31, 2021, the registration and payment are automatically transferred to the new dates.

  • If you inform the Congress Secretariat about the cancellation in writing at wcaprague2020@guarant.cz no later than March 31, 2021, your registration fee will be refunded in full less 50 EUR administration fee.
