SCR'20 - Cancellation
The Swiss Society of Radiology (SGR-SSR) and its associated sub-societies, as well as the Swiss Society of Nuclear Medicine (SGNM-SSMN) and the Swiss Association of Radiographers (SVMTRA-ASTRM) have been monitoring the COVID-19 situation very closely and evaluated its potential impact on the SCR’20.
After careful evaluation of the situation and in light of the state of emergency declared by the Swiss authorities as well as the World Health Organization characterization of COVID-19 as a pandemic, we came to the conclusion that holding or postponing a large medical conference, like ours, would neither be feasible nor appropriate and, thus, had to make the difficult decision to cancel the SCR’20.
While we are extremely disappointed that we have to cancel our annual meeting, we have to concentrate on the most important aspect at the moment: support slowing-down the spread of this virus. We hope that you all stay safe and we look forward, more than ever, to seeing you for the SCR’21 which will take place in Davos, from June 24-26, 2021!
