Communication Matters Conference and Coronavirus (Covid-19): Updated 26/3/2020

While we cannot be certain of what the position around Coronavirus will be come this September, we have made the difficult decision, which has not been made lightly, to cancel the Communication Matters International AAC Conference which was due to be held on 13-15 September 2020 at the University of Leeds. Whilst we appreciate this will be disappointing news to many of you, our primary concern is the health and safety of individuals, which is particularly pertinent in the care, health and education sector communities that Communication Matters brings together. We did look at the option of postponing the conference, however it is not possible to hold the conference at any other time of year due to the availability of accessible accommodation at the university. We look forward to welcoming you to Communication Matters Conference 2021 on 12-14 September at the University of Leeds!

13-15 September 2020, University of Leeds
