The RLUK20 Conference is still going ahead as planned. As such our policy on any cancellations will be as per our FAQ.
We continue to monitor official advice on COVID-19 and we will review the situation if government advice changes between now and 16 March.
The conference will be a no handshake zone, and the venue will provide hand sanitising wipes for delegates. If any delegates are travelling to the conference from areas of risk and develop symptoms of cough, fever or shortness of breath, we would ask that they do not attend the conference.
Unfortunately due to travel restrictions for some of our speakers we have had to make some changes to our programme.
We regret that Chris Bourg (MIT) and Bergis Jules (Documenting the Now) will no longer be able to attend the conference.
We will now have a keynote presentation from Sue Williamson, Director: Libraries at Arts Council England on Tuesday 17 March. Masud Khokhar’s keynote has moved to the morning of Wednesday 18 March. Cerys Hersey and MacKenzie Smith’s keynote presentations will go ahead as scheduled.
