Stay connected in uncertain times. Join the global nephrology community, in-person or virtually

wcn21 new website right image smallWCN’21 is organized by the International Society of Nephrology (ISN), hosted by the Canadian Society of Nephrology (CSN) and la Société Québécoise de Néphrologie (SQN). The organizers are adjusting to the reality that will impact the format of the congress. We continue planning WCN’21 to deliver the high-quality educational experiences and opportunities for scientific discovery, networking, and professional development that you have come to expect. The World Congress of Nephrology (WCN) brings together thousands of the world’s leading experts in kidney health care to present the most recent advances, exchange the latest science and discuss the newest clinical applications designed to improve kidney health and prevent kidney disease. 


Status update August 2020

Planning for WCN’21 remains on schedule and we are hopeful to be able to gather in-person in Montreal in April 2021. Making sure our full community from around the world is able to connect at WCN’21, activities will be developed to allow online learning, exchange and networking. Innovative formats will encourage synergies between online and in person learning and exchange, and offer exciting new opportunities. The congress will operate with enforced sanitary precautions and will be compliant with all other safety measures including maximum physical distancing. We closely monitor developments, consult with our hosts and local partners, and follow advice from national and international authorities in ensuring a secure and safe environment.
