ACR Convergence is the world’s premier rheumatology meeting, and plans are underway to bring you an outstanding event in 2021.

Despite a strong desire to return to an in-person format, it is unfortunately not viable this year. San Francisco will be unable to host our meeting due to COVID-19’s continued impact to the area and the world. As a result, #ACR21 will be offered as an enhanced virtual meeting experience. We hope you’ll join us in November for stellar rheumatology education, outstanding networking opportunities, and more.


ACR Convergence 2021 Preview

ACR Convergence 2021 brings you multiple opportunities to take a more active role throughout the meeting. While you’ll be able to enjoy the full experience virtually, additional in-person opportunities will be available.

We have an action-packed event planned, kicking off on November 1 with early access to the virtual meeting platform, followed by advance programming on November 3–5 (including the all-new Global Rheumatology Summit, Basic and Clinical Research Conference, and Radiology Bootcamp), ACR Convergence scientific programming and special events on November 5–9, and the ACR Review Course on November 10.
