National Astronomy Meeting to be a Virtual Conference

February 10, 2021, from Natasha Jeffrey

In response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Royal Astronomical Society (RAS) and the University of Bath have decided to hold the National Astronomy Meeting (NAM 2021) as a virtual conference from 19-23 July.

We are all in an unprecedented and rapidly evolving situation, with governments around the world revising their official guidelines on travel and social contact on a daily basis. We therefore feel that the most responsible and secure way to move forward is to host the conference as an online event.

Apart from running online, we expect to produce an exciting and innovative programme of scientific and other sessions at NAM 2021. We will publish the programme in the near future, and will invite scientists to submit abstracts in the normal way. We look forward to seeing everyone at the conference in July.

Best wishes,
Patricia Schady
