The December 2021 issue of ISTRO info contains important information about the ISTRO2022 conference: abstract submission for the 22nd ISTRO international Conference (now ISTRO2022) is still open with an extended submission deadline on 17th December 2021.

The deadline has been extended due to the limited number of abstracts received so far. This is likely due to the uncertainties due to the COVID19 situation etc. The appearance of the Omicron variant has not made it better. More than 100 submitted abstracts are needed to make a physical conference viable. Otherwise, the physical conference will have to be cancelled and some alternative put in place.
Go to www.istro2021.com for abstract submission details. Acceptance notifications will be issued in late January. (Image: ISTRO conference website frontpage.)
