2021 ISAA Symposium Update

In the United Kingdom, after quite a very disruptive 2019, a period of calm and stability was promised following the large win by the Conservative party in the December 2019 election.

Then Covid-19 arrived!

As we are all too aware, many lives and businesses have been severely disrupted by Covid-19 and I am sure we are all horrified at the deaths worldwide from this pandemic and offer our sympathies for the families affected.

Originally, we looked forward to ISAA 2020 in Bordeaux last July. The decision was then taken to postpone the event until May 2021 (ISAA 2021). Unfortunately, the second wave of the pandemic, which is spreading like wildfire in many parts of the world, has led to severe travel restrictions and many lockdowns – either regionally or indeed whole countries. As a consequence almost all conferences have been cancelled, postponed or converted to a virtual event. ISAA is a technically led conference, bringing together Industrial and Academic researchers from all over the world. The social interaction, technical discussions as well as the opportunities to meet colleagues, manufacturers and customers is a key part of the conference.

Whilst it would be possible to hold a “Zoom” event, following a survey of the members it has been agreed, once again, to move the conference back to later in 2021. The Conference Centre venue remains unchanged and a new contract has been made for hotel bookings offering a preferential rate to ISAA attendees.

The new date for ISAA 2021 is Monday 6th December to Friday 10th December 2021.

We sincerely hope that the world has conquered Covid-19 by then and look forward to welcoming you to The Palais des Congrès in Bordeaux..
