University of Glasgow statement

on the Outlander Conference Glasgow 2020

After careful consideration, the University of Glasgow has made the difficult decision to cancel the Outlander Conference Glasgow.

The event was due to take place at the University of Glasgow from the 2 to 6 June 2020. The organisers of the conference hope to work to reschedule their event at a later, yet to be decided, date.

The decision to postpone the conference follows increased concerns about the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. It was felt this was the best way to proceed for everyone due to take part in the conference which would have had delegates from around the world travelling to Glasgow.

We are very disappointed that we are unable to hold this event at the moment and know this disappointment will also be shared by those hoping to attend. But we feel it’s the right decision based on the information we have today relating to the global outbreak.

Any further updates will be shared via this website
