Info: We know from talking to you that many people have been missing the face-to-face element of meetings and that there is a real appetite for a ‘return to normal’. UFAW will be following best practice and the latest COVID guidance from the Scottish Government and that of the venue. Places will be limited and we would not want you to miss out, so please register early to ensure your place (tell your friends and colleagues too - you would not want them to miss out on meeting up with you!). More details on registration can be found here. Registration for the conference opens on 1st February 2022. For those who cannot travel to Edinburgh, talks will also be streamed live on-line, but the workshops will not. Only people who attend the meeting in person will be able to participate in and enjoy these. There will be a number of subsidised student places at the conference that will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. To claim one of these places, please contact Stephen Wickens in the first instance with proof of student status (eg Student ID card or similar)
