Digital RDD 2020 starts April 26, replaces cancelled RDD California

Announcement from the organisers of RDD 2020 Digital:

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused the cancellation of RDD 2020 and IPAC-RS conferences in Palm Desert, California. We know you expect a quality conference, so we have committed to providing you with the best alternative conference experience. It’s an experiment that will succeed if we are all flexible, innovative and connected enough to outwit a coronavirus.

Beginning April 26, registered delegates from around the world will receive access to enhanced content on our Conference Website. Think of it as the conference venue open 24/7 with the following features:

Digital Auditorium

  • 24/7 Access to original presentations recorded by experts and key opinion leaders arranged in themed sessions. Access to corresponding speaker papers
  • Ability to pose questions via Ask a Question website feature

Digital Platinum Sponsor Sessions

  • 24/7 Access to presentations recorded by major sponsors
  • Ability to pose questions via Ask a Question website feature
  • Digital Delegates can watch all Platinum Sponsor Seminars (no difficult choices to make, unlike at time-constrained traditional conferences)

Digital Scientific Poster Session

  • 24/7 Access to ePosters and their associated abstracts created by companies and universities around the world

Posters on the Digital Podium

Digital Technology Exhibition

  • Digital Delegates will be able to view profiles of companies participating in the virtual exhibit. They can learn more about service and product offerings via links to enhanced content created and hosted by exhibitors.

Digital Networking 

  • We know networking is pivotal to the success of any conference. We have created a tool that allows registered participants to message each other once they opt-in. By mutual agreement, you can then share personal contact information and communicate however you choose.

Digital Library (Complimentary 12-month subscription)

  • 24/7 access to a searchable library containing more than 2,500 peer reviewed papers presented over 30 years of RDD conferences

Digital Personal Proceedings

  • Create your own Digital Personal Proceedings (up to 10 articles) so you know which presentations you plan to watch and which posters you will visit online.

Digital ‘Charlie’ and Winner of the 2020 Charles G. Thiel Award for Outstanding Research and Discovery in Respiratory Drug Delivery Award

  • The winner of this year’s Charlie Award will be announced during Digital RDD 2020 but, because we love Dr Thiel and the RDD 2020 honoree too much to deprive them of an award ceremony in front of an audience, the presentation ceremony is planned for a future RDD conference.

For Traditionalists

  • The paper proceedings were in publication before COVID-19 intervened. Conference delegates who originally opted for a hard copy of the proceeding will receive these by mail.
