IFTPS 2022 Online Technical Conference by ZOOM

February 28 – March 3, 2022

Jump to Online Registration & Purchase

We have closely monitored the COVID situation as it influences travel and meeting constraints to assess whether potential attendance numbers would make it economically reasonable to meet in-person this year.

After careful consideration the Board determined that it would not be economically sound for the Institute to hold an in-person event this March. However, building on our experience gained in March 2021, we will move forward with internet-driven technical sessions and our AGM this coming March.

Not being able to be together with our friends and colleagues is disappointing to many of us; however, hopefully events will allow us to hold an in-person symposium later in 2022 and get back to our usual conference gathering in 2023.

All sessions are scheduled in Eastern Standard Time
