The 2020 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting was scheduled to take place May 29-June 2, 2020 in Chicago, IL. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the meeting was transformed into a virtual format as the ASCO Virtual Scientific Program and the ASCO Virtual Education Program, taking place May 29-31 and August 8-10, respectively. Registration was free for ASCO members, with a fee for non-members that covered the cost of both meetings – including access to live and on-demand content.
