Online registration for the 2020 Virtual Annual Scientific Meeting is now open.

COVID-19 Update

Cancelation of the face-to-face 2020 ASM & Announcement of Virtual Meeting 5th and 6th of November 2020

In view of the worsening situation with COVID-19 infections affecting parts of Australia, the ESA has made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s face to face Annual Scientific Meeting scheduled for 4th to 6th November at the Hotel Grand Chancellor Hobart, and postpone this to 2021. We recognise this will be disappointing, but the health and safety of meeting attendees is our highest priority.

Instead, we plan to hold a shorter virtual meeting on the mornings of Thursday 5th and Friday 6th of November, and will keep you updated with more details as soon as they are finalised.

Abstracts submissions will still be accepted for another week for the 2020 Virtual ESA Annual Scientific Meeting, closing on Monday, 3rd August. For those who were not intending to travel to the Meeting, but would like an opportunity to present virtually, are more than welcome to submit.

On behalf of ESA, thank you for your understanding, and we will provide more information in the coming weeks.

Best wishes and stay safe,

Dean Jones and Tyson Ware                                         Terry O’Brien
