The Korean Academy of Tuberculosis and

Respiratory Diseases International Conference 2021

(KATRDIC 2021)


It is a great honor to invite you to the 2021 Korean Academy of Tuberculosis and Respiratory Diseases International Conference (KATRDIC 2021), which will be held at Lotte Hotel World in Seoul, Korea from November 11 to 12, 2021.


KATRDIC 2020 was held in a virtual format to wisely cope with the rapidly changing COVID-19 situation last year. It was regrettable that we couldn't meet participants in person, but 1,406 participants from 25 countries around the world attended the event while safely social distancing through the online framework. This was possible thanks to prominent experts from neighboring countries and around the world who actively participated and provided their generous support.


In order to continue the academic presentations and discussion, which is the unique purpose of this year's conference, we have decided to prepare and respond to the changing COVID-19 situation with stability and efficiency. Therefore, KATRDIC 2021 will be held in a hybrid format, both online and offline. The conference will consist of live on-site lectures by domestic speakers and pre-recorded lectures by overseas speakers.


KATRDIC 2021 will be a great opportunity for us to keep up with the rapidly changing developments and innovations in the field of tuberculosis and respiratory studies. It will also be a meaningful place to discuss the latest trends and more, including the ever-changing healthcare environment. We believe we can overcome difficult times together and achieve global cooperation.


Furthermore, to encourage greater participation from all over the world, the organizing committee will offer various award categories. Therefore, we would appreciate it if you submit your abstract and complete registration by the deadline.
