Biennial Conference Postponed to 2022

 Calgary, Canada
July 3-7, 2022
The impacts and uncertainty of the ongoing COVID19 pandemic and anticipated ongoing travel restrictions is impacting our planning of the next Biennial Conference in Calgary, Canada. The IHPST Council has been exploring our options including hosting the meeting even if only a few can attend, hosting the conference in a hybrid format, or hosting the conference online. Each of these options has its merits along with significant challenges. As we evaluated the costs and benefits of the alternatives, a fourth possible solution emerged: to postpone the conference by one year. After deep discussion, this option is the Council’s recommendation because it preserves the quality of the scholarly interactions. 

Thus, the 16th IHPST Biennial Conference will be postponed to 2022. 

Glenn Dolphin and his team are happy to be able to host the next IHPST Biennial Conference in Calgary on July 3rd-7th, 2022.  Glenn will reach out to those who have already submitted proposals with next steps.  

During the next months, the Council will plan online web seminars to be held in 2021 to help maintain our interaction. Please follow the IHPST social media to know the news.
