Dear ISVEE Delegates, greetings from Merida, Yucatan, MEXICO. We look forward to seeing in you in ISVEE 14 Yucatan 2015. We have started organization activities in preparation for ISVEE 14. Based on climate information and after consulting with the scientific committee, the organizing committee has decided to offer ISVEE 14 during 3-7 November 2015. The main reason for selecting this date is to avoid the hurricane season in the Atlantic/Caribbean region. The weather in Merida in November is very pleasant with an average high temperature of 30 C (87 F) and an average low of 18 C (65 F). In addition, pre-symposium workshops will be offered during 1-2 November and post-symposium workshops during 8-13 November 2015.
