Resilient as our community is, we now more than ever appreciate the value of coming together, as well as the opportunity to develop further and take this step. As always, the conference aims to support the exchange of ideas and knowledge amongst its members, giving them opportunities to present papers and get feedback, have panel discussions, and to support and inspire each other in these extraordinary times.
The first online annual conference will take place on July 1 and 2, 2020.
