ISMS Update November 2022


Save the Dates - 20th ISMS Congress Dates and Venue Announced


The dates and venue for the 20th International Congress on the Science and Cultivation of Edible and Medicinal Mushrooms organized by ISMS have been set.


This long-awaited event will be held in conjunction with the 26th North American Mushroom Conference at the JW Marriot Las Vegas Resort & Spa in Las Vegas, Nevada in the USA from 26 – 29th February 2024.


Pls save the dates in your calendar. February 2024 seems a long way off, but time is flying by. ISMS and AMI began planning for the event some time ago so you can expect updates over the next 15 months as key pieces of planning become reality. If you have any immediate questions, please email them to [email protected].


Calls for ISMS abstract submissions will begin early in 2023. Authors and presenters can expect a similar format and process that was used for the ISMS e-Congress last year.


A detailed email on abstract requirements and process, and presentation guidelines for Las Vegas will be sent out in December.


By the time we get to Las Vegas it will be almost 8 years since we last got together as an ISMS family. I sense the 20th ISMS Congress will be one event you will not want to miss.

The Mushroom Days Foundation has advised that Dutch Mushroom Days will be held on 10-11-12 May 2023, in "De Brabanthallen" in 's-Hertogenbosch, The Netherlands.
