Dear Colleagues and Friends,
After much thought and deliberation, the WSPID Board, together with the International Scientific Committee (ISC), has decided to move to a virtual meeting taking place from 22 February to 24 February, 2022, instead of the face to face meeting planned in Cancun, Mexico this coming December.
This decision was an extremely difficult one as we were all looking forward to catching up with you all in person and enjoying some of that famous Mexican hospitality. We sincerely thank the ISC and local organisers for their understanding and continued commitment to WSPID.
More details and information will be available in the coming months how this virtual experience will look, but rest assured, the scientific exchange and networking will still be superb and have that unique WSPID feel.
