BASAS Conference 2021

BASAS was very disappointed to cancel this year's BASAS Conference at Southampton University due to Covid19. We are, however, pleased to announce that next year's Conference will be hosted by the University of Edinburgh. Because of guidance from University of Edinburgh, this will be a fully on-line conference. The organising team is already working on detailed plans, in conjunction with University of Edinburgh IT support. The Edinburgh organisers will ensure that BASAS members are kept informed as plans develop. For the moment, pencil in the provisional dates that were announced earlier (28th and 30th April 2021) but please note that constraints in Edinburgh might make it necessary to change them.

As previously mentioned, the organising team of the BASAS 2021 conference has agreed to consider any papers originally accepted for BASAS 2020 for inclusion in the Edinburgh programme. If you had a paper accepted for BASAS 2020 and would like your abstract to be submitted to the Edinburgh team for review, please send an email to the following address confirming your request
