Long Range Planning Committee Update

Peter O. Newton, MD
Long Range Planning Committee Chair

The next 4 years of the Annual Meeting locations are confirmed, as listed below. The Annual Meeting locations are chosen so as to balance the venues throughout the world, however the majority of the Annual Meetings will be hosted in North America. The Annual Meeting for 2024 is shaping up to be in Barcelona, Spain.

IMAST is largely held outside of North America (except when the Annual Meeting is outside North America). IMAST is making its Spring debut in Athens, April 1-4, 2020 and we are confirming locations for 2023 and 2024.
