Dear Faculty Member, dear Abstract Submitter, dear Participant, dear Partner,

The evolution of the Covid-19 Epidemic and the increasing travel restrictions, are forcing the Presidents of the 8th International Workshop on Lung Health to reconsider the format of the congress.

In order to make available the programme to all the interested professionals in Europe and abroad that may be facing challenges to attend the physical event, the Organising and Scientific Committee decided to adapt the overall programme to a virtual format..

The live sessions will take place on the same dates planned for the congress with the  adding of an additional day, and precisely from 13th to 16th January 2021.

Rising Stars, Posters (in the form of E-poster) live discussions will be preserved, while a change of format is expected for the FuHeL (Future Health Leaders) programme.

Detailed information regarding the revised scientific programme will soon be available on the congress website.

In the meanwhile we kindly remind you that the Call for Rising Stars deadline has been postponed to  October 26th, 2020  while the Call for Abstracts deadline is now set for  November 16th, 2020. We invite you to submit and encourage the submission of the valuable works.

Remaining at your entire availability for any further information or assistance you may need, we sincerely thank you for your understanding and resilience.

Warm Regards,
