The 14th ISSDP conference
The 14th ISSDP conference will be held in Aguascalientes, Mexico, June 2-4 2021.
The conference was initially planned for May 2020, but due to the public health risks from the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and the travel restrictions placed on many members and other conference attendees, and the risks of a second wave in late 2020, the conference has now been rescheduled for 2021.
