Thank you for your registering for the 2020 cytopathology symposium in Taipei. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic COVID-19, the Taiwan government announced that Non-Taiwanese is not permitted to enter into Taiwan from March 19, 2020, and the event in which participants will exceed 100 people should not be held from March 25. Although I hate to admit, it is very likely that the possibility of improvement within these two months is rather low. Therefore, our society decided to cancel the symposium. I want to apologize for the inconvenience and trouble which might be caused.
Concerning next year's symposium, we will start to prepare after we go through the pandemic. We would be very happy to inform you after the speakers and programs for the 2021 symposium been finalized. Please take care!
