Dear Friends and Colleagues,
After much consideration and discussion, we have decided to postpone the 13th International Congress on Myeloproliferative Neoplasms, originally scheduled for October 29-30, 2020 in New York City.
The COVID-19 global pandemic has created a great deal of uncertainty for all of us during this unprecedented time and significantly affects the ability of delegates, industry partners and faculty to participate fully in the meeting. While many groups have chosen to go virtual with their meetings, ours has always emphasized faculty interaction, audience participation and personal, collegial discussion among attendees, trainees and faculty. Thus, we believe we will not be able to accomplish our goals this year, those which have made this congress so unique and successful in the past. Accordingly, we think it best to postpone our event until the fall 2021 when, hopefully, it will be safe for all of us to gather again for another outstanding in-person occasion.
We anticipate that the meeting will be held in the fall of 2021 at about the same time, and we will notify you once the dates have been confirmed. All updates will be published here on the conference website as well.
We wish you good health during these challenging times and look forward to seeing you next year!
With warmest regards,
