Update October 2020: In response to the continuing pandemic and in collaboration with the hosts and the Local Organizing and Scientific Program Working Groups, WCN’21 will be hosted to a virtual format. The safety and well-being of our members, their patients and the public remains our primary concern and is the focus of all our plans in delivering WCN’21. This first virtual WCN offers new opportunities and opens the congress to members who may not have been able to attend in person before.
