JUC PAC Annual Conference 2020

Important notice - conference cancellation

It is with great reluctance that we must announce the cancellation of the JUC PAC annual conference at De Montfort University (08th - 09th September 2020). This includes the Doctoral Conference (07th September) and any other events associated with the conference. 

The PAC Executive, in conjunction with the conference organising committee at De Montfort University, have a primary responsibility to ensure the health and well-being of all conference participants. The global COVID-19 pandemic and the uncertain situation we all face between now and September leaves us with no choice but to cancel the event. There are still far too many unknown variables in play: the rules on social distancing, travel advice, and, most importantly, the safety of all delegates. There is no way of knowing what the situation will be like in the UK come September. 

We are sorry to disappoint those who were looking forward to the conference. The local organising team remains fully committed to supporting the work of PAC and we would like to confirm that De Montfort University will be hosting the PAC2021 annual conference. Information about dates, conference themes and keynote speakers will be announced in the autumn. 

Again, our sincere apologies for the cancellation. Thank you for your continuing support and understanding. We look forward to seeing everyone at De Montfort University in September 2021.
