The Covid-19 outbreak has put everything in uncertainty. It is not known when the situation returns to normal and when international travel will be possible. Fair assessment of holding an international conference in this environment is nearly impossible, until everything settles which may not be until middle of next year. Holding a virtual congress for ISHAM 2021 is also difficult, as it requires multiple tracks simultaneously. All ISHAM council members and the local organising committee of the ISHAM 2021 congress have decided to postponed the 21st Congress of the International Society for Human and Animal Mycology, New Delhi, India and general assembly by one year. New dates finalised are March 8-12, 2022.
