The decision to cancel ATS 2020 was made based on recent actions by various government entities, including guidance issued by the CDC and the Pennsylvania Governor and out of an abundance of caution and concern for our community, members, conference attendees, exhibitors and staff.

ATS leadership is currently exploring options for providing select elements of the conference content in a web-based format that would be available later this year. 

Abstracts accepted for presentation at ATS 2020 will be made available on the Online Program Itinerary on April 1, 2020 and will be published in the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine on May 1, 2020.  Authors will also have the opportunity to provide an ePoster outlining the research presented in the abstract.

ATS will provide refunds of the registration fees and is currently working on an automated refund process. 

As of Friday, March 20th all hotel reservations made through Experient have been officially cancelled. If you did not receive your refund or have questions, please contact Experient at If you did not book within the official ATS hotel block, you will need to call and cancel directly with the hotel.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this unprecedented public health crisis.
