Cancellation of 2020 conference in Dublin

We are sorry to announce that we have cancelled the AHI 2020 Conference in Dublin which we announced a few weeks ago. Although October is still a long way off, there were obvious risks to AHI to holding a conference outside of the UK. The trustees recognised that even if restrictions were lifted by the autumn, there would be considerable disruption likely to still be occurring, as well as the increased cost of the conference which would make it unlikely that we could run the conference successfully and enable us to break even.

We would like to thank all those who have worked on planning so far, including all the contacts we have made in Ireland who have helped greatly to this point. We know this will be disappointing as AHI’s conference is a high point of the year, but we hope members will understand the decision.

The call for papers for AHI Conference 2020 is therefore withdrawn. However the 2021 Conference will have the same theme of 'Interpretation as a catalyst for change'. Please continue to consider the theme and the 2021 call will be issued in the new year.

We will explore options of virtual and one-day events that could run if and when the situation allows.
