Postponed: BAVS 2020 Conference

Dear all,

We were looking forward to welcoming you all to Birmingham this year to celebrate the 20th anniversary of BAVS. It is therefore with great regret that we announce that BAVS 2020 will be postponed until next year. After careful consideration and consultation with the BAVS Executive Committee, we decided that this is the only viable course of action, given the increasing uncertainty that we face with regards to the COVID-19 pandemic. We wanted to let you all know in time, before you started making arrangements for the conference.

We hope that you are able to join us next year in Birmingham. If you have submitted an abstract or proposal, please be assured that we will be happy to consider these for next year; you’ll be hearing from us soon with this information, and we will be in touch again once we have further details.

All of Brum wishes the BAVS community a safe few months, and we can’t wait to see all of you in 2021. Should you wish to contact the organisers, you can reach us at

With best wishes,

Fariha & Rebecca
