A Message from the ISMRM & SMRT Presidents

Dear Colleagues,

Due to continuing safety concerns and public health restrictions with respect to large gatherings during the COVID-19 pandemic, the ISMRM Board of Trustees, with the support of the SMRT, met and voted to transform this year’s annual meetings into a virtual conference (v-conference), including a virtual exhibition (v-exhibition), to be held over the planned dates of 08-14 August 2020.

Expect the same exceptional standard in education and presentations that you have become accustomed to from ISMRM and SMRT. We are taking into consideration everything that you love about both the ISMRM and SMRT annual meetings and are transforming them for a virtual interaction. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we begin this process and promise we will have additional information in our online FAQs in the coming days.  Our primary focus today is to notify you of this decision so that you can plan accordingly.

We will be in contact with speakers, moderators and poster presenters within the next week to not only confirm your participation but ensure your hard work and research is optimally shared with our community.

We will keep you informed every step of the way and look forward to seeing you all virtually in August.


Larry Wald
2019-2020 ISMRM President

2019-2020 SMRT President
