Join oncology professionals from around the world for the ASCO20 Virtual Scientific Program to see and hear the brightest minds in oncology presenting state-of-the-art treatment modalities and new therapies. The virtual meeting, to be held Friday, May 29, through Sunday, May 31, will provide an engaging lineup of scheduled and on-demand scientific content offering the opportunity to learn and collaborate across a variety of approaches, disciplines, and specialties.

While registration is required for all attendees, the ASCO20 Virtual Scientific Program meeting fees will be discounted for non-members and waived completely for ASCO members. Registration will open in late April, and attendees of the ASCO20 Virtual Scientific Program will also receive access to the ASCO20 Virtual Education Program, to be held in August, at no additional charge.

We have planned an exciting meeting and look forward to welcoming you virtually. On Friday May 29, all oral, poster, and poster discussion presentations, as well as track-based Clinical Science Symposia, will be available online. Over the weekend, we will host scheduled events, including the Opening Session featuring the Presidential Address by Howard A. “Skip” Burris III, MD and Guest Speaker Address by David Fajgenbaum, MD; the Plenary Session; cross-cutting Clinical Science Symposia; and track-specific highlight sessions featuring the top science and highest impact results in each area. Participants will be eligible to receive CME, MOC, and CE credit.
