Raising-the-Curtain Sessions

Leading up to Virtual WCN’21, between April 12-14, ISN Collective-Member Societies and Regional Societies join us in a unique Raising-the-Curtain Series of sessions. The special format connects our community around the world in the days before the congress. Bridging different regions, the presentations will bring unique regional issues to the forefront but will also highlight topics we have in common. The sessions will be given open access, meaning they are open for all and registration is not required.

The sessions are scheduled at a time that is convenient for the presenting region. Respecting the original location of congress, the times indicated below are according to Montreal time (EDT). The time needs to be converted to reflect your own location.
