The SIOP 2020 Program Emergency Task Force is working hard to bring you a new way to experience the SIOP Conference and access the latest cutting-edge research. Preliminary details about the virtual conference and an FAQ page are available at and will continue to be updated.

Here are the basics:

  1. The conference will be virtual and asynchronous, so the presentations will be online for you to access as your schedule permits in mid-June
  2. You will be able to interact with presenters and other attendees using the popular Whova app
  3. You will be able to access the sessions and Whova only if you are registered for the conference. Not registered yet? You will be able to register soon, and at the early conference registration rate!
  4. Accepted conference submitters are being contacted soon to invite them to participate by sharing their research and session materials in the virtual event.

Working together and making the most of technology, we can make SIOP 2020 a different but exciting and informative event!
