In light of the rapidly changing picture with regards to Covid-19, the Organising Committee has taken the decision to postpone the conference that was due to take place on 29-30 June.


The conference will now take place in summer 2021 and we will contact you again shortly to confirm the new dates.


The Organising Committee will still go ahead with the publication of the accepted full papers, and will communicate with the authors individually to finalise the editorial process of their papers in the coming weeks.


Those who have already registered to attend the conference will receive a full discount, and will be advised when booking has opened for the rescheduled dates.
