We are sorry to tell you that the PESGB Conference scheduled for 27-29 March this year has been cancelled because of the coronavirus. This has been a difficult decision, and we appreciate that it will cause disappointment and difficulty to those who have planned to attend.

We are currently considering the questions this decision raises - concerning papers that have been accepted, payments for registration, arrangements for invited speakers, and a range of other matters. We are exploring the possibility of rescheduling the conference for a date later in the year, though it remains to be seen whether this will be feasible. We are also making further arrangements regarding the AGM, currently scheduled for 28 March, and the business meetings of the Society (the Editorial Board and the Executive Committee meetings) that are to take place on 26 and 27 March.

These are complex matters, and we ask for your patience. We shall write to you again in the course of the next week as these matters become resolved.

Paul Standish
Chair of the PESGB
