Online Meeting
September 17- October 20, 2020

During the past few weeks, the JSA/WAO Joint Congress 2020 leadership have been closely following recent and rapidly changing world-wide developments in response to coronavirus (COVID-19).

As the global impact of COVID-19 grows every day, our top priority will always be the health and safety of the participants & invited faculty, as well as our dedicated corporate sponsors and staff.

In line with this, after much careful deliberate consideration, JSA/WAO Joint Congress 2020 will be held in Online (Live streaming and On-demand platform). The content of the virtual congress is only available to registrants who registered to the congress.

Registration is re-opened now.
The registration fee has been changed. Those who have already registered their participation need to modify their category of participation from My page. Registrants will be refunded the difference between the original registration fee and their new registration fee.

Until then, it is from the bottom of our hearts that we wish you safety, health, and peace of mind during these uncertain times.
