The Virtual Conference will take place on September 13-16, 2020. There will be no face-to-face SCDM Annual Conference this year.

SCDM 2020 Virtual Conference will be an exciting, exceptional experience that showcases an outstanding scientific program with over 150 presentations of the highest level given by leaders and experts from around the world.

We are glad you asked! The essence of the Annual Conference will remain, we are working hard to maintain all the scientific content that is a hallmark of SCDM.

Here are some extra benefits of joining virtually:

  • Access from anywhere (phone, computer, tablet…) and anytime! You decide.
  • More flexibility for both networking and learning together with industry leaders from around the world.
  • You will no longer need to choose between sessions running at the same time. The virtual event gives you the opportunity to access recordings from all the sessions.
  • You will still have real-time interaction with the speakers by joining their Q&A sessions.


We will automatically transfer all attendee registrations to the Virtual Conference. The Virtual Conference fee will be applied.

The registration fee will be released shortly.

Delegates are responsible for cancelling their flight ticket. We advise you to contact your airline or travel agency for further details, as each airline has its own policies regarding refunds and vouchers for future travels. SCDM is not responsible for any cancellation fees or penalties related to these transactions.

Yes of course. Your current SCDM Annual Conference registration will be automatically moved to the virtual event. If you wish to transfer your registration to a different event, please contact [email protected].

Login credentials and other access details will be provided prior to the Virtual Conference, allowing you some time to get familiarized with the platform.

To attend the virtual conference, you will preferably need a computer, tablet or phone with Internet connection and an Internet browser installed (Explorer (latest version), Google Chrome, Firefox, or Safari).

Additional information as well as login credentials will be provided to all registered attendees before the start of the virtual conference.


Our program committee is working hard to restructure the current version to be in consonance with the virtual event. The updated Conference agenda will be released soon, in the meantime, please refer to the preliminary program here:

Of course. Submitted and accepted abstracts can be presented. The presenting author will receive further information with specific instructions as how abstracts will be managed in the coming weeks. All terms & conditions will remain the same. If you have questions about your abstract, please email [email protected].

Yes, you will still receive CEUs! The exact number of CEUs will be communicated at a later date.

Our platform will enable you to contact other registered attendees, schedule meetings with others including exhibitors, and will provide matchmaking opportunities. Also, there will be breaks, virtual happy hours, and more!


Exhibitors, sponsors and other partners will receive information soon from the SCDM team regarding many virtual opportunities to showcase your contributions and to interact with delegates from around the world.

For questions, please email [email protected].

SCDM is planning many opportunities for exhibitors and attendees to interact, that will help attendees to spend time with exhibitors at their convenience.

We are in the process of sharing available options with exhibitors interested in participating in the virtual format and will follow up with all in the coming weeks.
