Time Zone

The conference programme will be run in British Summer Time (GMT+1). If you are an international delegate, you will be able to view talks outside of this time, but please be aware that all social and networking events, and Q&A sessions with presenters will be live.

Conference website and technology

All the conference events will be available via this website. If you have registered then you will need to use your personal log in to access the delegate only pages. So on the day of the conference, just arrive at www.asabvirtual.org and log in!

In addition to this website, we also use Zoom and YouTube. 

Process of selecting abstracts

Abstracts will be grouped by topic and scored by panels of research staff. Scores will be the primary basis for selection, but we also strive to group talks during the programme into themed sessions based on topic and also plan to have presentations from a wide range of taxa and institutions. PhD students and early career researchers will be prioritised for talks.
