GPPS Xi’an21: Virtual Conference

Virtual Conference

Due to the rising numbers of COVID-19 cases in China, the GPPS Executive Committee and the Xi'an21 Organizing Committee have decided to move to a purely virtual technical conference, the event will take place on April 11-13th 2022.

Although now 100% virtual we will be trying to retain as much of the structure as possible. Once logged in attendees will have the option to move quickly and freely between the 10 presentation rooms.

Although lacking some of the personal benefits we are hopeful that the digital format will allow more people to see more presentations.
