The 2021 ASCO Annual Meeting will be an online only experience, June 4-8, 2021.

“We had hoped for a return to an in-person meeting as we all miss the opportunity to see and engage with our colleagues,” ASCO said in a statement. “While that will not be possible, due to continuing COVID-19 concerns, ASCO remains committed to delivering the latest groundbreaking science in oncology and timely information on clinical application and treatment.”

ASCO’s scientific and education programs will be held simultaneously June 4-8. The meeting platform will provide attendees with live and on-demand access to presentations and slides. The online meeting will also offer opportunities to engage with oncology thought leaders, including interactivity and live question and answer in key sessions.

Registration for the meeting launched Feb. 3.
