Virtual Sessions - Programme and Schedule

The 57th WPC will take place on 8-11 November 2021 in Doha, Qatar.  For those who will be unable to travel due to remaining country restrictions, the hybrid model will be adapted – fully virtual sessions for authors who can only present online will take place one week before the congress, and a limited number of in-person sessions in Doha will be livestreamed to virtual-only delegates.

If you are an author with an accepted abstract and you intend to submit your full contribution and register for the virtual-only ticket category, your presentation will be automatically scheduled in one of the online sessions of the Congress. Nevertheless, you may still be able to register for the in-person gathering in Qatar by paying the difference in fees as indicated in the fees overview page. The virtual sessions will take place one week (28-29 October/1-2 November 2021) before the in-person Congress in Doha, Qatar. The presentation schedules will be communicated to all participants after all paper contributions and registrations have been received.

Registration will open on 15 July 2021. Non-presenting authors are most welcome to also register for the Congress - whether participating in-person in Qatar or virtually.

While we are still working on the programme for the virtual sessions, you can find the in-person programme in Doha here.
