The Society is organising an International on-line conference for May 10th to 12th 2022. In addition there will also be an educational session which could be used for CPD purposes on May 9th.
We are looking for papers – the accompanying flyer has a link to Ex Ordo – the website that we are using to collate them and distribute them to reviewers. Submissions will be accepted on a rolling basis until 28 February 2022 at https://isrp2022.exordo.com.
If you are registered on our parent website, www.isrp.com, you will be sent further emails when the details have been finalised.
Sessions will be timed so that at least two of the time-zone regions (Americas, Europe and Far East) can participate live without having to be awake in the middle of the night. Sessions will be recorded.
There will be a registration fee for the conference and there will be opportunities for sponsorship. Obviously, protection against infectious disease will be a major theme of the conference.
