Young Cardiologists Competition 

is intended for doctors up to 35 years of age. Three winning works will be announced at the CSC Gala Evening and the reward will be sponsored participation (including travel and accommodation expenses) at the ESC Congress in Amsterdam 2020 or another congress chosen (up to a cost of 30 thousand Czk). 

The Best of Czech Cardiology

Every year, this section of the CSC Annual Congress presents the best original scientific papers of the CSC members, originated at workplaces in the Czech Republic and published in international journals with impact factor > 2.0 in the previous year. Citations for all registered papers (if they meet the conditions set below) are published in the congress program and several of the best ones (based on the IF value) are presented in a special section within the Congress. The best three papers are  awarded by the CSC Committee. Also the papers that are not selected for oral presentation are among the best what Czech cardiology has produced in the field of research.

Conditions for a paper inclusion in the section:

  • The paper was published in a journal with impact factor >2.0 during the calendar year preceding the given CSC Congress to which it is registered.
  • The paper originated at a workplace in the Czech Republic.
  • The first author is a CSC member.
  • The paper is original, presenting the results of author’s/authors’ own research (not a review, an editorial, an abstract, nor a case study). The paper did not originate abroad (e.g. during a stay of a Czech doctor abroad).

The assessment committee will choose the three best papers and their authors will be announced and financially awarded during the CSC Evening Gala (1st place - 50,000 Czk, 2nd place - 30,000 Czk, 3rd place - 10,000 Czk)
