ISAC XXI Virtual Kickoff Meeting June 28, 2021

Dear ISAC colleagues and friends,

The last time we saw each other was in 2017 in Baltimore in the US.

We want to have a face-to-face conference in 2022, 27th-30th June, but we don’t want to be away that long.

So, we invite you to join us at the Virtual ISAC 2022 Pre-Meeting that will be held on the 28th of June of 2021 by Zoom.

In this Virtual ISAC 2022 Pre-Meeting we will have a plenary lecture and a 2-hour session for young scientists (Students and young Post-docs) to present their work.

We therefore invite students and young post-docs to submit their abstracts until the 18th of June. Eight abstracts will be selected for a 10 min presentation + 5 min discussion. Two awards of 500$ will given to the 2o best works/presentations.

Please send your abstract to:

This will be a great opportunity to see each other, to discuss science and to listen the “new members” of our community.

Let’s gather online for the ISAC Meeting 2022!

With best wishes

Emilia Monteira and Silvia Conde
