the 79th Annual Meeting of the Japanese Cancer Association (JCA 2020)

The 79th Annual Meeting of the Japanese Cancer Association (JCA 2020) will be held as a Hybrid Meeting (on-site and online) due to the following two perspectives;

1)
The number of participants on-site will be limited (less than 1/3 of usual).
2)
Oral / Poster Presentation will be presented only online.
On-site Overseas Lectures are cancelled.
3)
The opportunity to obtain more academic information through online distribution
(live streaming & on-demand) will be offered.

The Meeting will be held from October 1 (Thu) – 3 (Sat), 2020 as scheduled. It will be available on-demand until October 31 (Sat), 2020.
The Main Program will be basically held on-site, and also will be delivered as live streaming. However, some of the Main Program and Oral / Poster Presentation will be presented only online (using PowerPoint presentation slides with audio). Q&A function will be prepared.
