ICRS2022 A HYBRID SYMPOSIUM

LIVE and ONLINE

from the
 

BAILEY ALLEN HALL

National University of Ireland Galway

June 25-30, 2022
 

 

 

ALL DELEGATES are required to be

fully vaccinated to participate in the live event.

 

  While our intention is for the majority of short oral and plenary talks to be delivered by delegates attending in-person, a minor proportion of short oral and plenary talks may be selected for presentation by delegates attending online/virtually.
 
  At all times, the safety of delegates will be our top priority.  All delegates attending in-person in Galway will be required to show proof of immunity (e.g. a COVID Vaccination Certificate or proof of recovery from the virus).   Attendees will also be required to adhere to all prevailing Irish Government, NUI Galway, and Public Health guidelines:

 

https://www.gov.ie/en/publication/3361b-public-health-updates/

https://www.nuigalway.ie/covid-19/

 

(Including, but not limited to: wearing appropriate PPE/face covering, maintaining appropriate social distancing, hand sanitisation and regular breaks for room ventilation).
 

  For delegates unable to attend in-person in Galway, all oral presentations and plenary talks will be streamed online, live/simultaneously/synchronously with Q&A, and posters will be viewable online.  For both in-person and virtual delegates, all presentations (oral and poster) will also be viewable as recorded material for a significant period of time after the live symposium concludes.  
 
  If public health advice and/or pandemic world travel conditions do now allow for a hybrid symposium, ICRS2022 will be held as a fully virtual/online symposium.  In this event, ICRS will refund the difference in cost between the in-person registration fees and virtual registration fees for all delegates impacted.  
 
  In addition, ICRS will facilitate delegates who wish to convert from in-person registration to virtual registration (with refund of balance of fees), or vice versa (with requirement on delegates to pay the additional cost for in-person registration).

 

ICRS Members, Delegates and Authors are invited to SUBMIT YOUR ABSTRACTS.

Braude Foundation
Awards


 

Born in Lisieux, France in 1925, Dr. Monique C. Braude spent her career at the National Institute on Drug Abuse, where she was instrumental in promoting preclinical research in cannabis and cannabinoids. In addition to her passion for cannabinoid research, Dr. Braude believed strongly in helping women enter scientific careers. She was an ICRS member and strong supporter of Graduate Women in Science.

 

Every year, ICRS selects outstanding female students, selected for academic excellence, abstracts review scores and presentation scores to
receive recognition from the Monique C. and George L. Braude Foundation.

 

 

ICRS Sponsors

Thanks to Our Kind Sponsors

We cannot thank our sponsors enough.  Their kind support faciliates Trainee Awards and other aspects of our annual symposium.  A major feature of our Annual Symposia has been to facilitate the next generation of cannabinoid scholars by supporting their participation.  ICRS is a registered U.S. 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization, and so we are able to use the funds provided by our sponsors to ensure that there is a reduced burden for early career researchers to meet and interact with the world leaders in cannabinoid research.

* In the unfortunate event that the in-person Symposium is forced to cancel due to COVID pandemic, a fully virtual ICRS2022 Symposium will carry on. The in-person component of registration fees would be refunded. 

 

Accommodations and travel arrangements are the reponsibility of the traveler and cannot, obviously, be guaranteed by the ICRS.  We shall do our best to keep our ICRS2022 delegates as safe as possible and will take into consideration the prevailing conditions in the Summer of 2022. 

 

We hope to see you all in Galway
