General Information

IDLSoc Virtual Event

The IDLSoc Virtual Event is taking place during the week that IDLS2020 was scheduled to be held. This will be a virtual event made up of different elements from the live event, but without the exhibition hall.

The outline of the programme can be viewed on the programme page. Full details of the programme will be made available at least two days prior to the event in the online environment.

There will also be a sponsor showcase section in the online environment, which will allow members to view information about the sponsors for the event, and will include images, videos, and datasheets.

Venues and Dates

The presentations will be streamed live from the 26th – 30th October 2020, with access to the portal remaining open to delegates until mid-December.

Registered members will be informed by email as soon as the online environment is open. The aim will be to make this area available from the beginning of October 2020 in preparation for the event.
