After running as an online conference in 2020 and 2021, we are pleased to announce that the 2022 UMS will be held in person on the UIC campus. It will also be possible to attend the plenary lectures remotely, using a zoom link that will be provided to registered participants; however, it will not be possible to participate in the poster session remotely.
