Due to continuing complications related to COVID-19, in the host country and around the world, IAMCR 2022 remains, as initially planned, an online conference. 

The conference’s initial plans also included a face-to-face national hub at Tsinghua University in Beijing and hybrid pre-conferences at Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University in Suzhou. Participation in the face-to-face events was to be restricted to residents of mainland China. 

The organisers are proceeding with preparations for these events. However, the situation remains uncertain and the nature of the national events will depend on the mitigation measures recommended by public health authorities, including Beijing’s local policies on public events and any restrictions on travel within China. 

We will follow the situation closely and keep you updated about whether in-person attendance for those who are currently in China will be possible.

We are grateful to the IAMCR community for your patience and look forward to a successful IAMCR 2022 Conference.
