Next week is the abstract deadline for HUPO 2022, which is being held in the Mexican state of Quintana Roo. This remote and obscure location was chosen as it would not flag the attention of managers and administrators who might question your underlying motivation for where you disseminate your newest research in Human Proteomics. We can't go to all of the meetings and we know that we only think about which meetings best aid in the advancement of our professional goals and our field before considering any other factors. While we all know this, these simple facts may be difficult for others who don't understand the level of devotion we have to our craft. They might, for example, question our choices between two very similar sounding conferences with similar sounding goals and names if we chose the one in a famous beach town in December over the one in Chicago in February.
Therefore, when time came around for Human Proteomics to be in the Americas again, the powers that be saved us any questions by choosing a town in largely unknown state of Quintana Roo in Mexico to make sure our motivations are not questioned. We can now drop right into a quiet and secluded location with a surprisingly convenient airport where there will be no distractions and just 100% focused Human Proteomics. Bravo, HUPO board, bravo!
Deadline is next week! (7/8)!!
