Online attendance

We have understandably received lots of inquiries about the possibilities of attending the conference online. As announced earlier we are preparing for an on-site conference in Turku, and are happy to inform that all the keynotes have confirmed their arrival to Turku making us hope that as many of you as possible will join us here in June. However, we understand all the challenges at the moment concerning not only the pandemic, but also the war in Eastern Europe that are influencing travel arrangements and future plans in many places. Due to this, we have decided to organize one or possibly more slots for online sessions, and we are also planning to stream the keynote lectures for those participating remotely. So, in case you are unable to arrive in Turku, there will be an option to participate online. After the early bird deadline on the 15th of March, we will make further inquiries about your plans. The conference fee remains the same for both on-site and online participants.

The conference team is aiming to have the conference as a live event in which participants attend the conference in person. The team is aware of the possible challenges of travel in June 2022 and is willing to discuss remote participation in cases where the travelling is hindered. Unfortunately, we are unable to offer the whole conference as an online event / in a hybrid format.

As you know, we had hoped to welcome you to Turku in June 2021, but as the global pandemic is still effecting every corner of the world and there is so much uncertainty, we have discussed the situation both with our Turku team and the international IABA group. We have made the extremely difficult decision to reschedule the World-conference to June 2022. As travelling will still be difficult next Spring and changing the conference to an entirely virtual form would require many changes in the programme and other practical difficulties, we think this is the only solution at the moment. However, the IABA-group is planning to offer platforms for area chapters to organise smaller scale virtual events next year – and you will be hearing about them soon.

We are planning to have the CFP open again next summer, and, at that time, you can confirm or update your abstract, propose a new paper, or withdraw your participation. Please wait for this follow-up information, as we cannot answer all individual emails right now.

We will update the website, and remember to follow us in Facebook and Twitter as well!

Regarding the registration and payment practicalities, our congress services Aboa (info@aboaservices.fi) will be in contact with you by the end of October.

The planning of the next year’s conference is still going on. We’ll give you more information as soon as we can.

The next year’s conference will take place from 15th to 18th of June, and we hope we will have as much as possible from the original programme with us then. After summer holidays in August-September, we will send you some more information and open the call for a short period of time. By then we will hopefully be wiser about the global situation of the pandemic – we truly hope that it is safe to travel to Turku next year, and we will try to make some preparations for distance participation as well.
