First of all, on behalf of the ATW 2020 Organizing Committee, we would like to express our deep appreciation for the dedication and hard work that you are all putting in both on the front line and behind the scenes of the current global COVID-19 pandemic.
Currently, the world is facing an unprecedented situation, and the ATW 2020 Organizing Committee has been monitoring the development of COVID-19 closely over the past few months. Due to the latest developments of the COVID-19 pandemic with increasing travel restrictions and the uncertainty of worldwide participation, the Organizing Committee has decided to convert the ATW 2020 into a Virtual Congress, to be held on December 3-5, 2020.
Under the theme “Adapting to the New Normal: New Future of Asian Transplantation,” the ATW 2020 Organizing Committee has planned an engaging scientific program with the hot topics and recent updates in the various field of transplantation in Plenary Sessions, Special Session, COVID-19 Session and Concurrent Symposiums. We are fully committed to providing real time sessions including QnAs with domestic and overseas speakers through stable system operations and technical support so that the congress can serve as a genuine platform for sharing knowledge and information.
We are confident that the ATW 2020 Virtual Congress will be an enthusiastic arena for exchange of the latest updates in our field despite the change in the format, and offer a valuable opportunity to broaden your horizon with your contemporaries from Asian transplant societies.
It is our great pleasure to welcome you to the ATW 2020 Virtual Congress. Please share your valuable expertise with us, and enjoy the programs prepared for you at ATW 2020.
Thank you for your strong support.
Chair, Organizing Committee
