KCR 2020 September 17 (Thu) ~ 19 (Sat), 2020
Virtual Congress


Dear colleagues,

First of all, please accept our deepest gratitude for the sacrifice and hard work that you are all putting in both on the front line and behind the scenes of the current global COVID-19 pandemic. The entire world has been facing an unprecedented situation, but thanks to the concerted efforts of everyone concerned, we have now entered a “distancing in daily life” phase whereby we may practice disease prevention while picking up on our economic and social activities and resuming our daily lives.

As such, the Organizing Committee of KCR 2020 has decided to go ahead with our plans to hold the KCR 2020 congress this year. We will, of course, continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation closely, and follow all government-recommended quarantine guidelines to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our participants.

In the meantime, we have decided to change the format of KCR 2020 to a hybrid congress, combining on-site and virtual sessions. All foreign participants may give on-line presentations and attend the virtual sessions while domestic participants will attend the congress on-site as usual. Interaction is a key element in maintaining a strong bond between the members of our radiology community, and must continue to be fostered. We are preparing a rich program that participants can engage in and enjoy fully whichever way they may choose to join us.

We are aware that many colleagues are concerned about the holding of a conference amid the uncertainties presented by the prolonged COVID-19 situation. The Organizing Committee of KCR 2020 will do its best to raise the status of the KCR congress by hosting an exemplary international conference with top priority on the health and safety of all our participants.

Please stay safe and healthy until we meet you at KCR 2020!

Sincerely yours,

Joo Hyeong Oh, MD, PhD
President, Organizing Committee
76th Korean Congress of Radiology
