We (the local organizing committee) are fully committed to hosting ICCOPT/MOPTA 2022 as an in-person conference. Although online and hybrid conferences have been successful, they are unable to replicate the in-person experience, which is crucial to form new research collaborations, meet new people, and create lasting memories. With that said, we are acutely aware of the complications and dangers associated with COVID-19.

Updated Conference Rules

The latest information that we have is that everyone is welcome to attend the event, although individuals who are unvaccinated will be required to wear masks while indoors on Lehigh’s campus. We will follow up with further information, including a request to collect information about vaccination status of registrants for the conference, sometime soon (in advance of the conference).
