We are all concerned about the spread of illness due to covid-19. We understand that presenters and participants for FanLIS 2020, 9th April 2020, have justifiable concerns around international travel, and the convening of colleagues at a physical event. As organisers, we share these concerns.
FanLIS is a relatively small gathering (maximum expected 50 participants), but some of our participants are from outside the UK.
For the time being, we anticipate that the Symposium will go ahead. We are following the official advice from City, University of London, which can be seen here:
This advice is based on UK government policy, which should be read in conjuction with guidance from international, foreign ministeries.
Should the current situation change, we will be in contact with you via email, this blog, and via Twitter.
Many thanks for your interest in our Symposium.
