The 61st Annual Meeting of the Japan Lung Cancer Society

Call for Papers

The Japan Lung Cancer Society (JLCS) welcomes presentations at the 61st Annual Meeting in Okayama, Japan. We look forward to your active participation.

Travel Grants will be offered to the author of selected abstracts by the 61st Annual Meeting of the Japan Lung Cancer Society.

With so many factors related to the COVID-19 pandemic still unknown, the decision has been made to convert the in-person meeting to a hybrid meeting on November 12-14, 2020 in Okayama. A hybrid meeting is a gathering of face-to-face participants that digitally connects with participants in another or multiple locations.
Accordingly, all speakers from overseas are required to give talks through internet. Also the Travel Grants to the authors from overseas have been cancelled at this time.
We appreciate your understanding.
