We are happy to inform that our plans for a face-to-face meeting in April 2022 are holding on strongly.

Most speakers are coming. We are opening the option to replace an outdated paper or send a new one.

At the same time, I am happy to introduce Dr. Manuel Pellegrini in charge of IFFAS webinar and Dr. Felipe Chaparro the editor of our newsletter. You are all welcome to send new ideas for webinar or newsletter.

Let’s keep in touch.
