Dear Council members, 

In view of the current circumstances we have taken the decision to cancel the face-to-face AGM at Birbeck on the 7th May 2020. Instead we propose to host a virtual meeting on this day via SKYPE. 

This online event will take place from 10am-12.30pm with the following timings: 
  • 10am: SCUTREA council meeting (for honorary and council members only).
  • 11.30am: SCUTREA AGM, open to anyone who wishes to attend.

We will provide more details closer to the time regarding the virtual forum.

Cancellation of AEGT2020 in Vancouver

During the past week, a growing number of travel restrictions, health advisories/directives, and cancellations of “mass gatherings” have been announced around the world. “Social distancing”—the opposite of what AEGT2020 is about—is being adopted rapidly as the “new normal.” Faculty, staff and students at universities around the world are being asked to self isolate and use various technologies to continue their academic work from home. Given these circumstances, the decision has been made to cancel the AEGT2020 conference in Vancouver.  More detail can be found in the link below.
