Upcoming World Assembly



 June, 2022 



Due to the coronavirus epidemic we are postponing the ICET2020 World Assembly at Bath Spa University. 
We will host the conference on the equivalent dates next year - the ICET Board Meeting on Monday 20 th June, 2021 and the World Assembly on Tuesday -Thursday 21-23 June, 2021. 
If you have had your abstract accepted, it will automatically carry through to next year and we will communicate with you as soon as we have confirmation that the World Assembly in 2021 is going ahead.
Obviously, this is most disappointing, but we are living through extraordinary times. I hope that our decision will not cause you too much personal or professional inconvenience. Once the health crisis is over and life settles back into a normal pattern I very much hope that you will be able to make plans to attend the ICET World Assembly in Bath in 2021.
