The Scientific Programme of Virtual NAPCON 2020 is for 4 days from 28 th to 31 st January 2021 and distributed over different halls. All attendees will get equal opportunity to interact with renowned national and international faculty in the field of Pulmonary Medicine. The Scientific Committee has strived hard to provide a well-balanced elaborate academic programme with presentation of the latest developments in Pulmonary Medicine and Allied Sciences along with discussion of the challenges faced in resource-limited settings. Final programme will be made available by the Scientific Committee after inputs from NCCP(I) and ICS Governing Council members in the joint meeting. In addition to the deliberations covered under the Scientific Programme , there are also 4 Oration Lectures of NCCP(I)and ICS each, 9 Young Scientist Award presentations of NCCP(I) and ICS each, Oral Paper Presentations and the E-Poster Exhibition.
