Another substantial change to the meeting involves the timing of the pre-meeting courses. The Review Course will be held on Tuesday, Nov. 10. The Basic Research Conference, titled Rheumatology in the Molecular Dimension: Insights from Single-Cell and -Omics Technology, and the Clinical Research Conference, titled Optimizing RCTs in Rheumatology—Past, Present and Future, will be held on Saturday, Nov. 21. Based on focus group feedback, we believe this revised scheduling will allow for greater global participation and help mitigate virtual fatigue.
