On behalf of ISSMO, the local organizing committee would like to welcome you to the start of the live events of WCSMO-14 during the week of June 13 – 18. We thank you for participating in this virtual event, recognizing that after more than one year of global pandemic all of us are saturated with web-conferencing and remote meetings.
We tried to design WCSMO-14 to promote interactions among participants by organizing technical sessions into poster-style breakouts, providing virtual meeting places, and offering roundtable discussions. Please, check out the Coffee Break and the Meet & Greet rooms, accessible through the Lounge of the virtual conference platform. Also, please note the conference chat option and the chat feature attached to the recordings of the presentations. We hope you enjoy the virtual conference platform and use its interesting features.
While the pandemic has prevented us from hosting the conference on the University of Colorado Boulder campus, here is a video that gives you some impressions of what Boulder is about. Maybe it motivates you to visit us at some time in the near future. You will always be welcome.
Organizing WCSMO-14 was only possible with help of many people. Our thanks go to all listed on the acknowledgement page in the program.
Please, do not hesitate to contact us if you encounter any issues during the conference and have suggestions for improving WCSMO-14. You can talk to us remotely via the “Talk to us” option of the Information Booth.
