Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we were forced to cancel our 2020 conference which would have been hosted by The University of Liverpool. Although the below events are no substitution for a fully present conference, we hope that you can find something of interest. Events will be added as they are prepared and where possible, we are recording sessions for streaming post-event.
