The American College of Rheumatology will hold its annual meeting as a completely online event during Nov. 5-9, 2020, rather than in Washington, Nov. 6-11, as originally planned “due to public health/safety concerns related to the COVID-19 pandemic,” according to an announcement from the organization.
“We’ve given our annual meeting a new name, ACR Convergence 2020, and a fresh look, and we have reimagined #ACR20 without losing the elements you care about most: stellar rheumatology education, cutting-edge advances in science, and outstanding networking opportunities,” according to the announcement.
A frequently asked questions page for the meeting says that “ACR Convergence will include oral and poster discussion presentations, track-based clinical and basic science symposia, opportunities to engage with speakers and participants, as well as an exhibition and several special events.”
The ACR said that the meeting will be held on a new online platform, with more details to come in August, when registration will open. The final program for the virtual meeting will be available on the ACR website in July.
