In view of the escalating global COVID-19 crisis, ANZATS has taken the regrettable but necessary step to cancel its 2020 Conference. The ANZATS conference had been scheduled to be held in Adelaide in early July in conjunction with the ISBL Conference. The ISBL conference had already been cancelled.
In the meantime, the ANZATS Council is considering ways in which it may still be possible to conduct smaller-scale online seminars/workshops towards the end of this year, based around the 2020 Conference streams. This would provide one avenue for feedback on research in process. Given the uncertainty of the current situation, this is subject to further developments and feedback. The Council hopes to give more definite information by mid-year.
At the same time, planning is well under way for the 2021 ANZATS Conference, which will be held in early July in Perth at the University of Notre Dame. Further details will be made available later this year.
