ESTRO 2020 will move to 28 November – 1 December 2020 with an updated blended programme.
With the extension of public health safety measures in relation to COVID-19 across the world, the conditions to organise a meeting ensuring the safety of participants this summer are not met. After liaising with the Austrian authorities to identify a timeframe that could safely accommodate our event, the Board of Directors came to the decision to postpone ESTRO 2020 to 28 November – 1 December 2020.
In order to give the members of our community the best possible experience, and allow broad and continuous participation, we have decided to adopt a new concept: a reduced Congress with a live programme in Vienna along with a digital participation. Additionally, it will be complemented by a wealth of online activities prior the congress, which will feed into the live lectures.
This new format is meant to combine the value of sharing content and experiences as well as networking opportunities.
Access to online content will be included in the registration fee to participate in the physical Congress. The members of our community who are unable to attend can access the online content and the Congress session in live streaming by paying a digital subscription.
More information will be given in the coming weeks about the updated programme.
Please regularly refer to ESTRO 2020 webpage for more details.
We are confident that these actions will help ensure the safety and wellbeing of our community, which is our priority, and guarantee the dissemination of science and sharing of experiences for the advancements of radiotherapy.
We would like to thank you for your continuous support and hope that you will contribute to the success of ESTRO 2020.
Ben Slotman, ESTRO President
