Join us for the 5th IAMPOV International Symposium
2020 IN LONDON, ENGLAND has been postponed due to COVID-19.
Stay tuned for new dates.
On behalf of the IAMPOV 2020 Organizing Committee I would like to inform you of our unanimous decision to postpone this International Symposium, which was due to take place in June 2020 in London, UK.
As part of a critical analysis of the risks related to Covid-19 and the associated travel restrictions, the organizing committee decided to suspend, and reschedule, this international event.
We believe that this is a sensible decision in the interests of everyone involved. The members of the steering committee felt strongly that the health and safety of delegates traveling to IAMPOV 2020 should be the number one priority.
With this early decision, We hope that any inconveniences this postponement might have caused is as low as possible.
As a preliminary, and pending National and International guidance on Covid-19, the IAMPOV Symposium could take place in June 2021 at the same location (London, UK).
We will make every effort to keep you informed of any future plans relating to the Symposium.
We thank you for your understanding and support in these difficult times.
With best regards,
London, England at the City, University of London
June 11 – 14, 2020.
This Symposium highlights new and developing technologies for monitoring Perfusion, Oxygenation and Ventilation. It also provides an educational forum for clinicians, device regulators, engineers, and researchers.More about the symposium >>

Robert J. Kopotic, MSN, PhDh, FAARC
Bob is a critical care nurse and respiratory therapist with graduate and bachelor’s degrees. While at Emory University and UC San Diego, his studies focused on circulation, oxygenation and ventilation, which led to curriculum development and device patents. Thereafter, Bob directed clinical and regulatory programs for various manufacturers. This combination of disciplines has him now focused on technologies that detect ischemia in advance of organ failure and where algorithms guide personalized patient management of oxygen carrying capacity and perfusion. Owing to his contributions to patient care and the medical device industry, he was inducted into multiple honor societies and invited to chair the ISO Oximeters committee for all clinical oximetry devices. He is currently a Senior Manager of Clinical Affairs at Edwards Lifesciences.
