CfP: BSECS 51st Annual Conference “Indifference and Engagement”

By Emily Paterson-Morgan

2022 Call for Papers: This call will open 08:00 BST on 1st July 2021 and will close at 23:59 (GMT) 1st November 2021.

Event dates: 5th-7th January 2022

As you will no doubt be aware, the COVID-19 pandemic continues to force a re-evaluation of in-person events around the world. As a conference team we have also had to weigh up our options and decide upon an appropriate course of action for the organisation, balancing the value of an in-person conference with its risks. Ultimately, we have decided that it would not be right to commit to organising an in-person conference in January 2022, and we have therefore decided that BSECS 2022 will be a virtual event. This was no easy decision to make, but we felt that conditions were still too uncertain at the present time to make any other option feasible with our present resources.

Further details about the event will be made in the autumn, but the format will be similar to the 2021 conference: 2 synchronous days and 1 asynchronous to catch up on talks and workshops.
