Important Announcement – LASI20 Cancelled

The LASI organising team has been exploring options for hosting the event later in the year. Unfortunately, hosting a face to face event in 2020 is not viable in terms of either securing physical space at the university, individuals being able to travel and/or able to secure funding to attend.

The LASI organising team also believe that hosting an online synchronous event (à la LAK20) is difficult to justify given the nature and purpose of LASI, diversity of time zones and the effort required.

Taking all of the above into consideration, the decision from the SoLAR Executive is to concentrate on supporting local areas to host their own events – LASI Locals – virtually or face to face if that becomes possible in the final few months of the year. All registration fees will be fully refunded.

Sincerely,
LASI20 Organizers
