Annual Conference

The next PME Annual Conference will take place in Khon Kaen, Thailand, July 19-23, 2021.

March 15th, 2020

Due to the global pandemic caused by the new coronavirus disease (COVID-19), and following the decision to postpone ICME14 until 2021, IGPME has decided to postpone PME 44 by one year. We will decide the specific date as soon as the new date for ICME14 conference is announced. We will continue discussions with the PME 44 local organising committee to determine details related to the conference. For example, we will decide how to handle papers already submitted for the conference, the already paid pre-registration and membership fees, and the Annual General Meeting.

Whereas postponing the PME 44 conference poses challenges, we saw no other alternative in the current situation.  However, we expect to be able to deliver a magnificent PME 44 conference next year. We sincerely apologize to everyone for the consequences of this unfortunate and dramatic development.
