Cancellation of World Congress of AIMS

Congress cancelled

After consultation with the Local Organising Committee of the AIMS World Congress scheduled for 8–10 April 2021 in Batumi (GEO) it has been agreed that conditions likely to prevail at that time would make it impossible to stage the Congress.

No new date has been set for the 23rd World Congress but a further announcement will be made in due course.

With the cancellation of Athens Marathon The Authentic on 8 November the associated AIMS Marathon Symposium has also had to be cancelled.
