Unique Hybrid 25th Congress of the APSR

The 25th Annual Congress of the Asian Pacific Society of Respirology (APSR 2021) will be a hybrid event consisting of both an in-person congress in Kyoto, Japan and a virtual congress through our dedicated online platform.
APSR 2021 was originally scheduled to take place in Kyoto, Japan, in October 2020, but due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, it had been postponed to November 2021. However, since it would be difficult to ensure safety in November considering the uncertainty of the COVID-19 outbreak, it has been decided to hold the congress as a hybrid event, a combination of on-site events with virtual elements such as webinars, podcasts, and online presentations.
APSR 2021 has been shortened to a 2-day congress to take advantage of the effectiveness of these virtual elements, and the entire academic program has been consolidated into the weekend of November 20-21, 2021.The first day will be a hybrid event, delivering the vibrancy and opportunities that only an in-person congress can deliver, while the second day will be a unique virtual congress only, taking full advantage of online technology. In-person/virtual congress registrations will include free access to the on-demand virtual platform, accessible until December 2021 (tentative), with all the scientific content available as on-demand content.
Furthermore, in order to make this unique hybrid congress, a first for APSR, available to as many people as possible, we have reduced the registration fee significantly from the normal price.
Any updated information will be made on this website in a timely manner. Questions regarding the hybrid congress can be found in the FAQ section. We hope you find this helpful. Read more
