Notification: Postponement of the 3rd Sapporo Conference for Palliative and Supportive Care in Cancer (SCPSC)

The spread of the COVID-19 has become a pandemic so unfortunately we would like to inform you about the postponement of the 3rd SCPSC.
We have been carefully exchanging information with many well-informed people from a wide variety of areas since mid-February of this year. Based on these information exchanges, we have decided to postpone the 3rd SCPSC for 1 year to August 20(Fri) and 21(sat),2021. There may be some people who believe that this decision is premature. However, there are currently participants from around 30 countries scheduled to participate in the 3rd SCPSC. The time of the COVID-19 spreading has differed depending on the country. We must closely observe not only the situation in Japan, but also the world. The safety of the invited speakers, applicants in the poster presentation, general participants and all of their families comes before anything. We are responsible for ensuring the safety of all these people.
The program scheduled for the 3rd SCPSC in August 2021 will be the same. I know this is a heart-breaking decision so we ask for your understanding in this matter.
