Because of the ongoing uncertainty around COVID-19 and its impact on international travel in 2021, we have decided to the ‘in-person’ Nantes ISRS meeting until May 29 – June 2, 2022.
Instead, we plan to hold a virtual SRS meeting (eSRS) in May 2021, particularly catering to the needs of early career researchers and emerging talent in the field. The meeting will take place in the form of invited keynote talks, oral and poster abstract presentations as well as a carefully selected workshop topics. The meeting will also be held for 3-4 hours each day to reduce screen fatigue and also allow participants to join us simultaneously from across the globe. Presentations will be made available for post-meeting access and accepted abstracts will be published. There will be financial awards for top oral and poster presentations, too.
The portal for eSRS abstract submissions will be open shortly.
It is, of course, hugely disappointing to have to postpone our face-to-face meeting in Nantes by a year, but I’m sure that waiting another year will make the event even more special. We also intend to hold our 2023 ISRS meeting in Hawaii as previously scheduled.
We will be keeping you updated with developments on our exciting program for eSRS 2021 in the coming weeks.
