2020 NF Conference Going Virtual

By April 14, 2020January 17th, 2024NF Conference

In light of the global public health crisis related to the COVID-19 pandemic and, most importantly, in the interest of the health and safety of the entire NF community, the Children’s Tumor Foundation, its Board of Directors and the 2020 NF Conference planning committee have made the collective decision to cancel the 2020 NF Conference to have taken place at the Loews Hotel in Philadelphia from June 13-16th.

While an in-person meeting is not possible at this time, there is still vital and timely information to share with the community. Therefore, we are currently exploring the most effective ways of hosting a scaled-down meeting in virtual format. We will provide updates with details of this reformatted event as they are developed. As of now, we expect this to take place within the originally scheduled June 13-16th timeframe.

The virtual program will include both platform and poster sessions. We are therefore extending the abstract submission deadline to May 4th to accommodate those who could not meet the original deadline due to COVID-19-related schedule disruptions, and for those who have late-breaking research data to share.

Anyone who has registered and paid for the conference will have their payments automatically refunded.

More information can be found on the NF Conference webpage.
