Dear Delegates of APCCMI 2020,

Greetings from a hopefully post-COVID19 pandemic world as we emerge from the peak of the global pandemic. I hope you remain well.

While most countries are slowly containing the virus, we are seeing resurgent cases in some countries easing lockdown measures. International travel is still limited with airlines and governments exploring new ways for safe travel. The organising committee consulted Singapore Tourism Board and we received advice that we should postpone our conference to 2021.

We hope you will still attend APCCMI 2021 which is likely to be on 11 – 13 November at the same conference venue. It is likely that we will have a hybrid conference with online as well as on-site symposia. In the event of local outbreaks of second and third waves, there will be options of online access to the full programme with interactive features.

To get the latest updates about APCCMI 2021, please register with our website. You will get updates on the scientific programme, pre-congress workshops, abstract submission registration, accommodation, social programme and exhibition. Please register early to avail of early bird rates, as well as rates for collaborating societies, low-and-middle-income countries and group discounts.

In the meantime, we wish you good health and we look forward to welcome you to Singapore in November 2021.

Yours truly,

Associate Professor David Lye
