April 26-29, 2021

The lingering Covid-19, again makes celebration of the 20th International Conference not possible. Therefore, it will be rescheduled again to July 2022.
After several meetings, the ISP Executive Council has decided to organize the 1st ISP Online Interim Meeting. Your participation in the ISP members survey two weeks ago has been of great help for us to decide the dates and the content of this first virtual meeting. Dates will be April 26-29th, 2021. Regarding the contents, we have also prepared a preliminary version of the scientific program. It will have three main topics as you suggest: Fundamentals in Plastination; Plastination in Education and Plastination as a tool in Clinical Anatomy and Research.
The participation will be free of cost for participants. We encourage you to participate in this first online meeting by sending your abstracts to us. Accepted abstracts will be published in the Journal of Plastination, and we offer you the possibility to expand your abstract as an original paper for the journal.
The important deadline is February 25th, the last day for registration and abstract submission.
On behalf of the organizing committee, I would like to wish you all a healthy 2021, take care of yourself and your loved ones, and we really hope we can meet in April 2021.
