SIU 2020 Virtual Congress Scientific Programme

Behind the scenes, much work has been done to modify the existing SIU 2020 programme that had been designed for an in-person meeting to adapt to the new reality of virtual presentation. The SIU and Scientific Programme Co-Chairs, Drs Christopher Evans and Rajeev Kumar, thank all programme Chairs and Faculty who have contributed much of their time and expertise over the past 2 years. The programme for SIU 2020 Virtual will cover a wide range of topics and continue to offer the high-quality educational content that SIU attendees have come to expect.

The 2020 Congress Learning Objectives are as follows:

After this educational event, attendees should be able to:
