20th AWES Workshop - April 8-9, 2021

The 20th AWES Workshop, originally planned to be held in Suva, Fiji, in June (then November) 2020 has been rescheduled to run as a virtual conference in April, 2021. The uncertainty associated with delegate’s ability to travel both within our own countries and also internationally has meant we have had to make the hard decision to postpone and run this event completely online. We understand that this will not be to everyone’s liking, but in order to set a firm date for the event and enable members to have time to prepare their papers and presentations, we felt this was a decision that had to be made. All things going well, we will return to our usual face-to-face workshop-style event for the 21st AWES Workshop, which we hope will be run in mid-2022.

Registration, event and paper submission information will be made available through this site and advertised through our social media accounts and member emails over the next couple of months. We sincerely hope to see you online in April, and as always, if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact the workshop organising committee at chair@awes.org.
