Dear Colleagues,

The IPITA, IXA and CTRMS are pleased to announce the Call for Hosting for the 3rd Joint Congress of our associations. The Congress will take place in 2021 and will continue a history of successful joint congresses that took place in 2007 and 2015. The 2015 Congress in Melbourne, Australia attracted over 600+ participants from 30 different countries and we are eager to host a large Congress again in 2021.

The requirements to submit a bid to host the 2021 Joint Congress of IPITA, IXA and CTRMS are attached to this email and we encourage each member to consider this opportunity.
