Due to the urgency surrounding the virus epidemic in Wuhan, China and its proximity to our Shanghai WCBIP this April, we regret to inform you that we must postpone this congress. The new date is as follows:

September 24-27, 2020

The venue will either be in Shanghai or Beijing, to be determined as soon as business resumes in China after the currently ongoing Lunar New Year holidays.

If you have already registered, your registration will carry over to our September congress. If you have submitted an abstract, publications and presentations will be in September.

The Board of Regents meeting will be on September 24, on which we will also have the Vice-chair elections, WCBIP 2026 bids presentations & voting, among other important WABIP business.

We sincerely apologize for this inconvenience. These hard decisions were made in response to the impact of the epidemic in China and around the world. We shall announce more details in the coming days and weeks.

Sincerely yours,

Guangfa Wang, MD, PhD
21st WCBIP President
Professor and Chairman Dept of Respiratory and Critical Care Med,
