Announcement: Final Postponement of the 20th ICSB!

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the new dates for ICSB are March 28th - 31st, 2022. Please read the full announcement below:

We hope everyone in the ICSB family is doing as well as possible throughout the pandemic. As things are beginning to return to our new normal and many have already been vaccinated, we considered having the ICSB conference this year. But after much discussion we have decided to yet again postpone this important conference until March 28th - 31st, 2022.

You and your health are of the utmost importance to us. We considered a virtual meeting, but due to the uniqueness of this conference, we determined that it wouldn’t be the same if we could not socialize with each other in a safe environment. We feel it would be in the best interest to everyone involved for us not to have it so that next year we can safely all come together for the biggest and best ICSB ever. The planning committee has used these last two years to come up with some interesting and innovative ways to improve our already one of a kind meeting. It is our hope that by that time it will be safe enough to hold our meeting. As much as we want to get reunite with you all and have another informative, entertaining, and enlightening conference, the safety of our participants and attendees must come first.

We want to thank you all for your patience and your continued interest in the ICSB, and we hope to see you next March! As always, feel free to contact us at for more information, or to express questions or concerns you may have.
