The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has had and continues to have dramatic consequences throughout the world. As countries struggle to contain the spread of the coronavirus, many national and international scientific, economic, cultural, and sporting events have had to be cancelled or delayed. Accordingly, it is with deep regret that we inform you that the Organization Committee has taken the difficult, but necessary, decision to postpone the First International Conference of Aerospace Medicine, which was to be held in Paris from 24-26 September 2020, to 23-25 September 2021.Read more
The COVID-19 pandemic is affecting all our countries in many ways. Of course, our thoughts are with those who are affected directly and their loved ones.

Most of you, the Aerospace Medicine professionals who are our members, are thereby affected, either directly or indirectly. Read more

Dear member associations of ESAM, The European Society of Aerospace Medicine – ESAM – is seeking closer collaboration with its European national aerospace medicine societies in order to promote and share more activities in aviation and space medicine across Europe.
Therefore please find enclosed a letter from ESAM President Anthony Wagstaff introducing the concept of Circle of Experts. This concept has been developed by the ESAM Advisory Board and is envisioned to serve as a platform for future collaboration and influence amongst aerospace medicine associations.
Dear Brigitte, dear Vincent,
As President of ESAM I would like to express my deep sympathy for the tragic fire and damage to the Notre Dame recently. The fire struck at a symbol of faith, culture and beauty, not only for Europeans, but for the whole world. Of course the loss is greatest for all Parisians.
You and all our friends in SOFRAMAS are at the heart of ESAM, and I think I speak for all ESAM members when I say that we are all united in support for you all in our thoughts. Luckily, no lives were lost, and the Notre Dame will no doubt be be rebuilt to former glory.
