ASCRS Announces 2020 Virtual Annual Meeting

ASCRS is excited to announce that the 2020 Annual Meeting will be held virtually on May 16-17. ASCRS plans to offer the same top-tier education, industry engagement, and CME credits that meeting attendees are accustomed to, in an all-new digital environment.

The 2020 ASCRS Virtual Meeting will be tailored specifically to the new digital space and includes a variety of live and on-demand educational sessions. All total, over 400 hours of educational programming, along with a digital exhibit hall are planned.

The virtual meeting will include a varied selection of symposia and instructional courses in a live stream format. Paper sessions, posters, films, and a selection of pre-recorded instructional courses – all originally planned for Boston, will be available on-demand with full slides, video, and audio.

In addition to the multiple educational offerings, there will also be opportunities for interaction with industry through corporate-sponsored educational sessions and a full digital exhibit hall. And attendees can still network with colleagues, industry, and faculty using the digital platform.

Beyond the virtual meeting dates, your registration also includes a subscription to additional content to be released throughout the year.
