As you will be aware, attempts to deal with the COVID-19 outbreak have led to a range of travel restrictions and disruption. The Society for Applied Philosophy annual conference is due to take place in Edinburgh 3–5 July 2020. Obviously, we can’t know yet what restrictions and limitations there will be at that time, both internationally and within the UK. Given the uncertainty we would like to suggest that those planning to attend the conference hold off on booking travel. We very much hope that the situation will allow us to hold the conference, but given its international nature, it may be in everyone’s interests to cancel. We will make a definite decision by 30 March 2020 which will be announced here (and by email).
