annual general meeting

IFTPS 2022 Online Technical Conference by ZOOM

February 28 – March 3, 2022

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
