In 2022, TIEMS-USA is responsible for hosting the Annual Conference for TIEMS. This meeting brings together interested parties from all over the globe. To help us fund this conference we are sponsoring a benefit virtual art auction now live at https://live.phiauctions.com/auctions/4-4Y6DMI/life-is-beautiful-part-i?limit=48. Please support our conference by visiting the auction. There are some works by famous artists at very reasonable prices.
