ASCN/WCET Joint Conference Update

As many of you will already know, the very difficult decision has been taken to postpone the ASCN/WCET 2020 conference to be held in Glasgow in October, due to the on-going impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The conference will now take place on the 3rd - 6th October, 2021 at the Scottish Event Campus in Glasgow.

  • All prices will remain the same as 2020 conference, if you have already registered you will have the option of either obtaining a refund or keeping your registration for it to be honoured in 2021.
  • If you would like us to hold your registration for 2021 there is no further action needed. If you would like to receive a refund please contact no later than 31st August 2020.
  • Please note: Any issued refunds can take 2-4 weeks to appear on your credit card statement.
  • All submitted abstracts will be rolled-over to the 2021 conference, and the abstract portal will re-open for further abstracts in the future. If you would like to withdraw your abstract you are free to do so.
