On March 18, ATS (American Thoracic Society) alerted sleep, pulmonary, and critical care professionals that it made the difficult decision to cancel the ATS 2020 International Conference, which was to take place May 15-20, 2020 in Philadelphia.

“To help fill the void from the loss of the conference, ATS leadership is currently exploring options for providing select elements of the conference content in a web-based format that would be available later this year. Details are still being discussed, and we will announce next steps as more information becomes available.

“For those of you who have registered for the meeting, we are working to make refunds for registration and hotel rooms that were booked through the ATS housing partner a seamless process and will be issuing more information soon.”
