Due to concerns regarding Covid-19 and to protect the health of delegates, organisers and staff we have made the difficult decision to postpone QRSE2020 due to be held at Durham University in July. We hope to reschedule the event next year. Stay safe friends and colleagues. We will provide more updates soon, including on refunds for those that have paid for the conference.
