LILAC 2020 Cancelled due to coronavirus (COVID-19)

Last Update:13 March 2020

Thanks to all our delegates for their patience during what is turning out to be a globally difficult time. The conference organising committee has taken the very difficult decision to cancel LILAC 2020 as a result of the ongoing concern with COVID-19.

All delegates will be entitled to a full refund for their conference place, however, if your institution is open to the idea of deferring the place to LILAC 2021 that would help us out a great deal. 

Please bear with us over the coming weeks – we are a small team who volunteer time in addition to our day jobs, so it may take us some time to process refunds/defer places. We will be in touch with all delegates and presenters via email regarding next steps at some point during the next few days.

If you have any questions regarding the above that remain unanswered, please contact us via
