Change of Venue for ITS 2014

By MarEx 2012-10-18 15:12:36

Due to circumstances entirely beyond our control, ITS 2014 can no longer be held in Panama as previously announced.

The Panamanian Presidential Elections are scheduled to take place in early May 2014 . It now transpires that, as is common in Latin America, the elections are quite likely to go to a ‘second round’ of voting, which would impact directly on the dates we had selected for ITS 2014. Panama has only the one Convention Centre and this will be used in its entirety for the elections. As a consequence the Convention Centre could not give us a guarantee on the dates we had been allocated. Clearly, this is going to disappoint those who were looking forward to going to Panama, and we can only apologise for that.

We were therefore left with no choice other than to find a suitable venue at very short notice. After much searching, it has been decided that we should return to Hamburg after an absence of 35 years. So please note that:
