Statement concerning COVID-19: The health and safety of our ISHI attendees, exhibitors, partners, and staff is our top priority. The symposium committee is continuing to monitor COVID-19 via the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO). We’re working with numerous stakeholders, including health agencies, the conference venue, and suppliers, to stay on top of the latest information and guidance available and develop precautionary measures to further reduce health risks at the event. At this time, we anticipate that ISHI 31 will take place as scheduled. Should circumstances dictate that hosting the symposium would be counter to public health recommendations, attendees will be notified and provided with options to cancel or amend their registration.
Discover the newest advances in DNA technology from top experts in the field at The 31st International Symposium on Human Identification. It’s all happening at the JW Marriott, Hill Country in San Antonio, TX from September 14-17, 2020!
