BAFTSS Conference Cancellation

Dear friends,

We are sorry to announce that because of the current threat to public health, our 2020 Conference at the University of St Andrews in April 2020 will no longer take place. This is very disappointing, but it is the right decision to take and we're sure you will have been anticipating it.

Our colleagues at St Andrews, Tom Rice and Shruti Narayanswarmy, had worked incredibly to bring the conference planning together, and on behalf of the BAFTSS EC, and all our members, I'd like to thank them for their patience, imagination and hard graft.

We will provide full information about conference registration fee refunds within a few days. ​

We are discussing whether it might be possible for us to re-arrange the conference for later in 2020. A further announcement will be made about this as soon as possible.
