ACR Convergence 2020, the world’s premier virtual rheumatology experience, happened online, November 5–9. The ACR's first all-virtual annual meeting was a success, and we’ve provided resources below to help you get the most out of attending the meeting.

ACR Convergence 2021 News

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 along with a number of in-person, special localized events to be announced in late July. We hope you’ll join us in November for stellar rheumatology education, outstanding networking opportunities, and more.
