Fairfax, VA (December 12, 2022) – After cancelling the RAFT meeting in 2021 due to a COVID surge and relocating the rescheduled 2022 meeting due to the devastation caused by hurricane Ian, it was a pleasure to (finally!) hold the RAFT®14 meeting in-person last month in Orlando from November 6th to 9th. Despite all of the challenges—and another impending hurricane—the conference was very well-attended with more than 300 people from industry, government, and academia from 21 different countries. It was one of the largest RAFT meetings in recent memory!
Fairfax, VA (November 18, 2022) – Things are starting to look more normal after the pandemic thanks to vaccines, masks, and COVID treatments that are now widely available. In that spirit, the 2022 SIMB Annual Meeting was held in-person in San Francisco, California, from August 7–10, 2022. Between the return of many SIMB members and growth from new attendees discovering the value of SIMB, the Annual Meeting was a great success and was well attended with over 500 attendees.
