Update on the 41st APEAA Conference at the University of Aveiro - 21-22 May 2021 

First of all we would like to thank everybody for their patience and understanding when the 41st APEAA Conference at the University of Aveiro had to be cancelled due to the pandemic!  

Given the ongoing uncertainty around the Covid pandemic, we have decided the best course of action is to hold the APEAA Conference entirely online, using Zoom. The new date is 21-22 May 2021, during Portuguese working hours. 

This is of course disappointing, since we will be unable to see our colleagues face to face to exchange views at greater length, but circumstances dictate this format. 

 

Some practical details

We would like to ask each of you to help us with the organisation of the conference by sending answers to the following questions to this email address ( dlc-apeaameetingaveiro2020@ua.pt) by 1 March:  

1 - Are you still planning to attend the Conference in this online format?  

2 - Do you wish to keep the same Abstract? If your Abstract was accepted you do not have to send it again, only confirm it is the same. If you want to introduce changes then please let us know. 

3 - If you want to submit a new Abstract, it will have to be considered again through the normal channels. Deadline for submission: 19 April 

4 - Notification of acceptance by 3 May.

5 - We've been forced by circumstances to go online. Nevertheless the University still has a number of expenses, for which reason participation in the conference cannot be offered for free. We are therefore prepared to refund half of the registration fee for those who have already paid (unless you specifically inform us by 19 April that this is not necessary). Any new registrations will be at half price. These are then the new registration fees:

  

Registration Fee (APEAA, SAAS and HELAAS members): 30 Euros
Registration Fee (non-members): 45 Euros
Student fee (APEAA, SAAS and HELAAS members): 15 Euros
Student fee (non-members): 22.50 Euros

6 - Deadline for Registration: 10 May 2021.
