The conference organising committee and the University have reflected upon the increased risks arising from the global coronavirus outbreak. This, together with the increased imposition of travel restrictions, will have an impact on the attendance of speakers, sponsors and guests.  In the interests of maximising conference participation, global collaboration  and learning, the event will be rescheduled to 9-11 June 2021.
A new call for abstracts and participation will be announced shortly.
Thank you for your patience whilst the conference organisers and sponsors work on the rescheduling of this event.
