The Program Committee is dedicated to organizing a challenging and interesting program for the congress participants bringing a large number of world-renowned scientists together virtually to share their expertise, remarkable achievements and most recent findings.

With so many congresses having been cancelled or significantly reduced this year because of the COVID-19 pandemic, TTS 2020 will provide an exceptional opportunity to learn the most up-to-date science and clinical practices.

The Congress will kick-off with the President’s Plenary and a special symposium on COVID-19 and its impact on transplantation followed by three days of a multi-disciplinary program featuring 250 presentations, including plenaries, state-of-the-art symposia, workshops and best oral abstracts sessions.

To enhance the networking component we will be running virtual networking rooms concurrently with the live sessions. You will have the ability to hop into thematic virtual networking rooms where you will be able to engage in discussions with your peers from around the world.

We are confident that the TTS 2020 Congress will be a rewarding and unforgettable experience for all participants attending from around the world. There will be numerous opportunities for companies to connect and network with the community while promoting their products.
