The ISBA Executive Committee and Program Council have decided to convert the ISBA 2021 World Meeting to a virtual conference to be held during the week of June 28 – July 2, 2021. The current plan is to offer free attendance to the virtual conference. The Scientific Committee, chaired by Li Ma, will be working on adapting the program, in coordination with a virtual conference organizing committee. The organizing committee comprises Ming-Hui Chen, Christian Robert (co-chairs), Roberta De Vito, Sally Paganin, and Xenia Miscouridou. We are grateful to Ming, Christian, Roberta, Sally and Xenia for agreeing to help with the virtual ISBA 2021! Once plans are finalized regarding the format of the virtual conference program, further details and calls for contributions to the program will be announced to the ISBA membership.
