We are pleased to announce that planning for our postponed 31st symposium is moving forward. The event will take place on the previously announced dates, July 12-18, 2021. Given the current circumstances, we plan for a hybrid symposium with an in-person meeting in Klaipėda, Lithuania and virtual participation by those who are unable to travel to Lithuania in July. More details will follow soon.

Presenters who have already decided to NOT participate in the symposium are kindly requested to notify the Programme Committee chairs (annevbibrawharton@gmail.comselena.rakocevic@gmail.com) as soon as possible.

The Programme Committee will be contacting presenters later this spring to confirm whether they will be attending in person or virtually. More details about how the virtual part of the programme will be handled will be forthcoming. 

The Local Organising Committee will be updating registration and accommodation information on the website in the next few weeks.

As you can see from the attached pdf, the organizers have been hard at work preparing for the symposium. The Abstract Booklet, which includes presenter bios, has been published and will also be made available in a virtual format prior to the symposium. 

We hope you will join us for the 31st symposium in July, whether in person or virtually.
