The conference venue is the Budapest Marriott Hotel.  The hotel is tucked along the banks of the Danube River, and is near some of Budapest’s most treasured landmarks, from the Chain Bridge to the Buda Castle.  It is about 15 miles from the Budapest Airport (BUD).  A conference dinner cruise will take place in the evening of Saturday, June 4; details about this event are available HERE.

Important:  The personal health and security of our members is our utmost concern.  Our goal is to hold a safe in-person conference in Budapest.  However, we will make alternative arrangements in the event that disease outbreak or military hostilities interfere with this goal.  Regardless, we will find the best way for the recent research of our members to be presented and disseminated.

We look forward to seeing you in Budapest in June.
