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 and will be held over four days, between 21st and 24th April 2021.

The organising team continues to work on detailed plans, in conjunction with University of Edinburgh IT support and will be issuing shortly the Calls for Papers.  

It is expected that Papers received from the Call will be reviewed in early Autumn with notes of acceptance sent out shortly thereafter. 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
