Dear NAMF Friends and Colleagues,
We are truly living in unprecedented times. Over the past days and weeks, it has become abundantly clear that Mixing XXVII cannot occur in June, 2020. As you are no doubt aware, the US/Canada border is closed for the first time in the history of either country. The Olympic Summer games have been postponed. Every major convention and trade show for the next 3 months has been cancelled or postponed. As such, we, along with the board of the North American Mixing Forum, have made the difficult decision to postpone Mixing XXVII.
We thank all those that expressed interest in attending and especially appreciate those that submitted their work. We had very much looked forward to learning more about your contributions to the field of fluid mixing and its importance across a wide range of industries and facets of life. We had also looked forward to paying tribute to some of our friends and colleagues who have left us over the last year. Most of all, we had looked forward to spending time with you all, enjoying great food and beverages, and meeting new friends.
While bittersweet, we would like to announce that we have finalized postponement plans. In consideration of EuroMix 17 and ISMIP 10, which are scheduled to occur in 2021, we have decided to maintain our biennial schedule and postpone Mixing XXVII until 2022. Mixing XXVII will now occur in June, 2022 from the 19th through the 24th. We would like to thank our partners, especially the Marriott on the Falls, for moving swiftly with us to reestablish plans in this time of uncertainty. Until then, we strongly encourage everyone to submit their work to the NAMF sessions of the AIChE Annual Meeting, occurring this October in San Francisco, CA. The call for abstracts closes on April 8th. Aaron and I hope to see many of you there this fall.
Please stay safe, stay healthy, and best wishes for the trying times ahead of us all.
Justin Walker and Aaron Strand
