Intention: In-person Conference

From 8 March, people in England will see restrictions start to lift and the government’s four-step roadmap offers a route back to a more normal life. Already more than 20 million people have been vaccinated in the UK, some 38% of the adult population. Cases and hospital admissions are falling sharply. By 21 June, the government hopes to be in a position to remove all legal limits on social contact. On this basis we plan to hold an in-person conference, and by the deadline for submissions (15 May 2021) we hope to have greater clarity on whether the roadmap is on track. We will revise our plans if necessary, but our hope is to be able to hold an in-person conference.
