ASCO’s primary concern is the health and safety of the global oncology community and the patients they serve. As public health safety measures related to COVID-19 extend, the ASCO Board has concluded that the Annual Meeting, scheduled for May 29-June 2 in Chicago, cannot occur in person as planned.
ASCO still intend to deliver the latest cancer science to the global community during the Annual Meeting timeframe using a virtual format that respects the contributions of the authors and the work of the Scientific Program Committee. In addition, abstracts will be published online and in the Journal of Clinical Oncology on their usual schedule. ASCO’s educational program will not take place during this timeframe, and they are exploring opportunities for the future.
Information on the format, dates, specific content, registration, refunds, and many other details will be available in the coming weeks and posted on am.asco.org.
