Non-CME Symposia Application

A separate application must be submitted for each request.

The ATS encourages Non-CME Symposia in conjunction with the ATS 2019 International Conference. Non-CME Symposia take place in conference hotels from 6:30pm to 9:30pm on Sunday and Tuesday evenings during the conference. Presentations should be scientific in nature and cannot offer CME/CE/MOC or any other form of professional credit, or be used to create CME/CE/MOC content post-conference.

Programs from MECCs are welcome but require a letter of approval from the ATS prior to submission of any requests for funding. For more information visit the MECC Information page on the conference website.

Non-CME Symposia rooms are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
