Boston meeting further postponed to 2022

Dear Colleagues,
With the health and safety of our attendees and community in mind, and taking into account the ongoing uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the organizers of the 29th ICMRBS and ICMRBS Council have decided to further postpone the 29th ICMRBS Conference to August 2022, at a date to be advised in the near future.
We are disappointed to have to make this decision, as the opportunity to present your science and make new connections is a valuable part of meeting face-to-face. However, the safety and health of all participants is our first priority.
Implications of the postponement of the 29th ICMRBS to August 2022:
Hotel Reservations at the Westin Copley Place. If you have already reserved a guest room at the Westin Copley, please cancel your reservation without penalty at your earliest convenience. Cancellation instructions were included in your reservation confirmation message. If you need assistance, please contact

Submitted Abstracts. Poster and oral abstracts submitted for the conference will remain on file and available for review/consideration for the postponed meeting. You may edit your submitted abstract at any time by returning to the online submission at We also can assist you to withdraw completely so that you may make a new submission in the future; please contact

Founders Medal 2020. The 2020 recipients, Paul Schanda and Nick Cox, were previously announced last October. They will present their Founders Medal lectures in two separate webinars in late August 2021. Dates for these webinars will be announced in mid-2021.

Program for the Postponed Conference in 2022. We hope to keep the existing program in place to the greatest degree possible. Once the dates of the 2022 conference are finalised, we will work with our planned plenary and invited speakers to confirm their participation.
Subsequent Conferences. The 30th and 31st ICMRBS meetings in Seoul, South Korea, and Davos, Switzerland, will be held in 2024 and 2026, respectively. We are very grateful to the organisers of these two conferences for their cooperation in postponing each of them by two years.
