Dear PROS members,
With the COVID-19 pandemic continuing and affecting international travels, it is challenging to plan the PROS biennial congress in Essen, Germany, initially scheduled from June 16 to 19, 2021. We feel strongly about PROS members to be able to continue to have face to face meetings, as we have always done. After careful deliberations, the PROS executive committee decided to postpone our congress by one year and move it from June 8th to 11th, 2022 in Essen, Germany. Note the dates in your calendar!
We have made arrangements with the SIOP to change our joint congresses' order and allow us to hold the joint PROS-SIOP congress in 2021 (from now on, we will continue in odd years). Thus, the next joint SIOP-PROS Congress will be held in Honolulu from October 21 to 24, 2021. Of course, SIOP and PROS will be carefully monitoring the status of the COVID-19 pandemic, and if it is necessary, the parts of the program may become virtual. We are currently working on the congress program and will be disseminating this information soon.
We hope to continue working together for our mission and looking forward to a better and exciting 2021!
With our best regards,
On behalf of PROS Executive Committee members
President - Natia Esiashvili
