Covid-19 Update – January 2021

We will periodically update this page with developments regarding the way conferences are being prepared for 2021.

We would like to thank conference participants for their contribution in making the virtual conferences last year a great success. The conferences ran using Zoom, presentations were made by conference participants, keynotes and expert panellists and interactive networking sessions were well received.

Events Scheduled for January – July

We are planning to return to physical events at the host universities this year. We know however that the events of last year have had longer lasting impacts on participants ability and willingness to travel. We are therefore planning for conferences moving forward to be “hybrid” in essence. Meaning that they will be physical events with virtual elements built into them to create an experience for both those who can attend in person and those able to attend online.

ICCWS 2021  The 16th International Conference on Cyber Warfare and Security, Cookeville, Tennessee, USA – 25 – 26 February 2021

ICCWS 2021 will run as a fully online virtual event. The conference will still take place on 25 – 26 February and will be held online using Zoom running to a programme on UK time (GMT). We will be facilitating networking and interactive elements to the conference.

ICTR 2021  The 4th International Conference on Tourism Research, Vila do Conde, Portugal – 20 – 21 May 2021

We hope to be able to run a physical conference, but we appreciate that even if this is possible there will be some people who will not be able to travel to Portugal to participate. Therefore, we will offer interactive virtual participation. We will decide whether it will be necessary to change this to a totally virtual event closer to the date.

ECRM 2021  The 20th European Conference on Research Methodology for Business and Management Studies, Aveiro, Portugal – 17 – 18 June 2021

We hope to be able to run a physical conference, but we appreciate that even if this is possible there will be some people who will not be able to travel to Portugal to participate. Therefore, we will offer interactive virtual participation. We will decide whether it will be necessary to change this to a totally virtual event closer to the date.

ECCWS 2021  The 20th European Conference on Cyber Warfare and Security, Chester, UK – 24 – 25 June 2021

We hope to be able to run a physical conference, but we appreciate that even if this is possible there will be some people who will not be able to travel to the UK to participate. Therefore, we will offer interactive virtual participation. We will decide whether it will be necessary to change this to a totally virtual event closer to the date.

ICGR 2021  The  4th International Conference on Gender Research, Aveiro, Portugal – 21 – 22 June 2021

We hope to be able to run a physical conference, but we appreciate that even if this is possible there will be some people who will not be able to travel to Portugal to participate. Therefore, we will offer interactive virtual participation. We will decide whether it will be necessary to change this to a totally virtual event closer to the date.

ECSM 2021  The 8th European Conference on Social Media, Larnaca, Cyprus – 1-2 July 2021

We hope to be able to run a physical conference, but we appreciate that even if this is possible there will be some people who will not be able to travel to Cyprus to participate. Therefore, we will offer interactive virtual participation. We will decide whether it will be necessary to change this to a totally virtual event closer to the date.
