What is the format of the conference?
We are extremely excited to host an in-person conference this year in Edinburgh, Scotland! In contrast to the previous 3 years where COVID-19 impacted our ability to meet in-person, we are confident that an in-person conference is achievable this year. Unless there is a UK government-imposed international travel ban to Scotland, we will not pivot to a virtual online format.
