Over recent months, PTCOG has continued to monitor developments relating to the COVID-19 pandemic and how these may affect our PTCOG 59 objectives. We feel for all those who have been directly affected and wish them and their families well. The impact has been and continues to be hard to predict especially the differences among nations. PTCOG being an international organization, spanning many countries and cultures must take this into account as well.
While we have been very heartened to see the level of interest received for PTCOG 59 in 2020, it has become clear that many of these uncertainties are likely to remain a challenge well into the final months or even weeks before our September 6-11 conference. For this reason and with the considerable feedback from our scientific and industry partners, we have decided to postpone PTCOG 59 into 2021.
The 59th Annual Conference of the Particle Therapy Co-Operative Group will now be held from Friday to Wednesday, May 21-26, 2021 in Taipei, Taiwan.
Thus the PTCOG cycle has now been shifted one year. We are very happy for the opportunity to continue our conference plans in Taipei. With the strong interest received from both the scientific community and industry, PTCOG 59 (in 2021) promises to be a highly successful and memorable event. Therefore, we once again re-invite all members of the PTCOG community to join us in Taipei in May 21-26, 2021. Please save the date.
Please continue to visit our website at www.ptcog59.org as we continue to update new information relevant to PTCOG 59 in 2021. We also invite you to review our FAQ’s section for answers to frequently asked questions relating to the recent postponement of PTCOG 59 dates to 2021 on FAQ page
Please also note that PTCOG wishes to maintain continuity and communication within the Particle Therapy community this year. We are now reviewing our options to provide a short online event in 2020
and will share more information on this as soon as possible.
We thank you for your understanding and look forward to seeing you online later this year and next year in Taipei!
