2021 COS Annual Meeting and Exhibition

COVID-19 continues to disrupt how we can connect and gather. The safety and wellbeing of our members, their families, patients, and employees is our top priority. Therefore, after careful consideration, the COS Board of Directors has taken the difficult decision to deliver the 2021 COS Annual Meeting and Exhibition as a virtual meeting, online and not in-person in Ottawa.

The 2021 COS Annual Meeting and Exhibition will be held from June 24 – 27, 2021.

Building on the successes of the virtual meeting delivered last year, our Session Chairs are working diligently to develop the high-quality scientific program that you expect from the COS Annual Meeting and Exhibition. We will continue to host subspecialty sessions, showcase innovative research through papers, ePosters and surgical videos. The COS will continue to update our meeting website with information about the scientific program, awards recognition, sponsorship, exhibition, and partnership opportunities. If you have research that you would like to showcase, please note that abstract submission is now open until November 9, 2020: Submit your abstract online HERE.

We look forward to a time when we can be together in-person again, but for now, we are committed to providing a platform with increased capabilities to engage with one another. We are also actively working to present a virtual exhibition hall allowing you to interact with our industry partners to discuss new technology, developments in diagnostics, treatment, and medical and surgical devices.

Thank you for your support. We look forward to seeing you online for our virtual 2021 COS Annual Meetingand Exhibition. Should you have any feedback, questions or comments, please do not hesitate to connect with us by email: [email protected] 

Take care and stay healthy.
