Hello IASNR members!!
I just wanted to send out a quick note to once again congratulate our 2016 ISSRM organizers for a job extremely well done. I know I certainly enjoyed the conference and we have been getting some very positive emails from attendees. I also want to thank Business Meeting attendees for the unanimous votes to approve our Code of Ethics and the changes to our by-laws. I also want to thank Erin Seekamp and her committee and Tom Fish and company for their excellent work on these documents.
I also want to point out that it is not too soon to start making plans to attend the 2017 ISSRM in Umea, Sweden, which promises to be an excellent meeting. Having visited the site last March, I can personally testify that Umea is beautiful, and a great place to visit and hold our conference. The only difficulty I can see is people getting to Umea and never wanting to go home again!!
I do want to bring to your attention that in order for folks to save money on airfare, we are going to accelerate the timing of the call for abstracts and for organized session proposals to points earlier than we have ever had before. Expect to hear from us in early Fall on this and please be thinking about what you may want to present and/or organize in terms of sessions for Umea.
Let me close by wishing you a great rest of the summer and please expect to hear from us early in the Fall!!
Matthew S. Carroll, Executive Director
