About ACPN 2021

Dear Pediatric Nephrology Colleagues and Friends,

The situation of COVID-19 has been evolving rapidly around the globe since its outbreak in January, and it has already been declared as Pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO). As precaution measures against the virus have already been launched internationally, and international bodies as well as public health authorities have advised against the organization of international events, it is therefore believed that the pandemic shall continue to cast a deep impact around the world for a while in the near future.

The utmost concern of International Pediatric Nephrology Association (IPNA), Asian Congress of Pediatric Nephrology (ACPN), and Local Organization Committee (LOC) is to ensure the interest and well-being of all the participants involved in the Congress. Out of this consideration, IPNA, ACPN and LOC have decided to postpone the 14th Asian Congress of Pediatric Nephrology (ACPN 2020) which is originally scheduled from September 9-13, 2020.

The 14th Asian Congress of Pediatric Nephrology will now take place from Monday, March 29 to Friday, April 1, 2021, with the venue remaining as the same at the Grand Hotel Taipei, Taiwan.

We sincerely hope that all of you can stay with ACPN 2021 in the postponed dates (March 29- April 1, 2021). Shall you have any questions or changes pertaining to your participation, please feel free to contact the Congress Secretariat at: secretariat@acpn2020.com.

We thank you very much for your support and understanding. We will work hard to assure the success of the Congress, and we look forward to welcoming you to Taipei in March 2021.

Yours sincerely,
Ching-Yuang Lin MD, PhD
Congress President
14th Asian Congress of Pediatric Nephrology
