COVID-19 Official Statement on the 18th International Myeloma Workshop (IMW)
We are looking forward to the 18th IMW, scheduled to occur in-person from 8-11 September in Vienna, Austria.
The IMS continues to monitor the public health outbreak of the novel coronavirus COVID-19, and the health and safety of IMW attendees is the Society’s top priority. To this end, our professional conference organizer, SPARGO, is developing IMW2021: Meet Safe While Face-to-Face, a full health and safety plan, in close collaboration with the venue, vendors, and outside public health and safety experts. This plan will be posted to the workshop website and updated as circumstances require.
In addition to the face-to-face workshop in Vienna, IMW programming will be livestreamed with remote participation for those unable to travel to Austria. Despite our best efforts to host an entirely in-person IMW, it is difficult to predict the extent of travel restrictions that might remain in place this September.
Whether in-person or virtual, the IMW will present an outstanding scientific program.
Registration and housing reservations for in-person attendees will open in April. Registration for virtual attendees will open this summer.
The IMS would like to thank all of our members, faculty, attendees, and supporters for their understanding during this time. Despite this challenging situation, we are working hard to ensure the 18th IMW is a tremendous success.
