2020 PSAI Annual Conference.

The PSAI Executive Committee has decided to postpone the Annual Conference at UCD until 2021. We will be holding the 2020 Annual Conference online. This conference will most likely be much smaller than usual, but we will offer the best event we can subject to our own limitations in terms of time and limitations.

The PSAI Executive Committee has created a committee to plan the 2020 online conference, which will take place on the same weekend that the conference was originally planned to be held (9-11 October).


The (draft) programme for the 2020 Online PSAI Conference can be found here.
