Announcement of Annual Musculoskeletal Tumor Meeting of
the Japanese Orthopaedic Association (JOA-TUMOR2020)
You must be through great hardship for the outbreak of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and the current circumstances.
The organizers have been seriously studying the format for convening Annual Musculoskeletal Tumor Meeting of the Japanese Orthopaedic Association (JOA-TUMOR2020), based on careful monitoring of the developments since the virus.
As a result, at the recent board meeting of the Japanese Orthopaedic Association held on Thursday, April 23, unfortunately, it was decided that it will not be possible to hold the JOA-TUMOR 2020 in Sapporo from July 16 (Thursday) to 17(Friday) and furthermore that it will not be postponed.
In lieu of the physical Annual Meeting, it has been decided to convene an on-line Annual Meeting during a limited period starting from September 11 (Friday) to 30 (Wednesday) in 2020. All speakers will be contacted by e-mail individually regarding registration of your presentation data and other matters.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and would highly appreciate your understanding and cooperation. As the organizing committee that has been progressing meeting preparations up to now, this decision was made with great reluctance, yet we are now determined to put forth our best efforts with new resolve, to ensure the success of the on-line Annual Meeting.
