An Update on the SIO2021 Annual Scientific Meeting

Thank you for your patience as SIO’s Board of Directors, program committee, and others throughout the association have monitored the COVID-19 pandemic and made decisions about how it might affect the SIO2021 Annual Scientific Meeting, set to take place this February in San Francisco.

 As always, our priority is your safety and well-being. Based on information from the World Health Organization (WHO) and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)—as well as your feedback—it’s clear we cannot hold SIO2021 in person as originally planned.

The event will now be taking place virtually, 3–6 February 2021. We’ll have more details on what to expect—along with registration and schedule information—in the coming weeks.


We know that this meeting is needed now more than ever.

IO professionals remain tremendously vital, not only in the way you’re continuing to provide care responsibly during this crisis, but through the essential work you do daily to advance interventional oncology as the fourth pillar of cancer care.

Our community will no doubt continue to play a key role in the coming weeks, months, and years, as work is done to save lives and further grow the IO field.

With all of this in mind, we hope you and your colleagues around the globe will join us as we take our signature meeting virtual.

Why the virtual SIO2021 Annual Scientific Meeting is a can’t-miss event:

We’re not just shifting to a series of webinars. This virtual meeting will feature keynotes, breakout sessions, and more. There will be timely programming, valuable opportunities to skill-build, and new connections made.

We’re excited about the possibilities going virtual will provide and look forward to seeing you this February... online!

Please feel free to reach out to us with any questions in the meantime.
