Note that we recognize the potential threat to the physical conference posed by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.  Please rest assured that the health and well-being of our membership is our primary concern.  We will only have the physical conference if it can be held safely.  If it cannot be so, we will hold it virtually.  We commit to holding the 2022 conference in one safe platform or another.

If you have any question, feel free to contact the conference coordinator Simon Gervais, at, or the program chair Allen Berger, at

We look forward to seeing you in Budapest in June of next year.
