2021 Annual Meeting

The 2021 MPIG Meeting will be held on 22-23 October 2021, hosted by the Lester E. Fisher Center for the Study and Conservation of Apes at the Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago, Illinois. We look forward to having you participate in this historic conference, marking the 17th anniversary of MPIG’s inception in 2004 – and our first in-person meeting following the COVID-19 pandemic.

We realize that holding an in-person meeting during a pandemic that is still unfolding has risks. Based on current Chicago and LPZ restrictions, we plan to have mandatory masking during all indoor sessions and events, and other safety measures related to spacing and cleaning will be in effect. Please contact us if you have any concerns or suggestions, and use the City of Chicago COVID dashboard to keep an eye on the local situation.
