SUPA 2020 Virtual Gathering

SUPA Virtual Gathering Tue 26 - Thu 28 May 2020

Tue 26th to Thu 28th May 2020

Due to the current pandemic, the 2020 SUPA Annual Gathering scheduled for Wed 27th May has been replaced by online events of interest to the whole SUPA community under the title "Virtual Gathering". While reflecting as far as possible the tradition of sharing, inspiring and engaging our community by showcasing and celebrating internationally leading research, daily screen times have been minimized by stretching the single-day AG into a three-day VG.
