In the uncertain times caused by the events that have been affecting our world in 2020 we have been evaluating all possible options regarding the format of TNC21.
At this stage we know that the event preparation and the conference will be different from previous years, but we’re planning accordingly and will keep our community up to date as regularly as possible.
Our plans are to host, together with Jisc, a hybrid conference in Brighton, UK where the physical and virtual elements will coexist.
In February 2021 we will make a final decision about the structure of our flagship event and we will promptly notify the community.
