When and where will WCLC 2020 take place?
WCLC 2020 has been postponed. The IASLC 2020 World Conference on Lung Cancer will now be held in Singapore from January 26 – 29, 2021 (WCLC 2020 Singapore).
Why has WCLC 2020 Singapore been postponed?
The postponement was based on multiple factors, including but not limited to, the current travel restrictions put in place by Singapore, the U.S. and other countries, and, importantly, the toll currently being placed on our health care community. These restrictions significantly affect the ability of delegates, speakers, presenters and exhibitors to participate fully in the WCLC 2020 Singapore. This decision also underlines our commitment to containing the virus and preventing further sickness and loss of life, as per WHO recommendations.
When and where will WCLC 2021 Denver take place?
WCLC 2021 will still be held September 11 – 14, 2021 in Denver, Colorado, USA (WCLC 2021 Denver).
