Regarding the upcoming ISMMS Biennial Research Conference in Mexico City, the Organizing Committee of the National Autonomous University of Mexico and the ISMMS Board have decided to postpone the conference. Until further notice, the meeting will now be from June 7 to June 10 of 2022.

While fortunately, there have been advancements with existing vaccines, we are still uncertain about planning a trip this year for all countries and to meet you all in Mexico City.

The decision to postpone the conference is intended to provide the best possible safety and travel planning for everyone interested in attending.

We greatly appreciate your understanding and support. Huge thanks to the ISMMS Board for collaborating and making the decision together for all.
