Given the current situation, the BSBF team has considered that keeping the original dates of the BSBF2020 event (October 6th to 9th, 2020) would make it difficult to guarantee neither the safety of the participants nor the achievement of our objectives.
BSBF2020 International Organising Committee (IOC) has made the decision, for the sake of the utmost safety for attendees, exhibitors and participants, to postpone the BSBF2020 event and have it re-scheduled and transferred to September 28th to October 1st, 2021.
You can download the BSBF IOC join statement on inpact of COVID-19 on BSBF and Big Science Market.
The event has also been renamed BSBF2021 and automatically mirrored for the new dates, which means that the already registered attendees, sponsors, exhibitors and participants of the BSBF2020 edition have been automatically updated to 2021 and need not follow any special procedure regarding registration or participation.
The BSBF2021 event will again be held in Granada (Spain), at the Palacio de Congresos, with the same programme and under the same conditions as the former BSBF2020.
All BSBF sessions and speakers will be maintain, as far as possible depending on their availability.
Following the refund policy announced some time ago; all payments from participants, sponsors and exhibitors will be maintained for the BSBF2021 new dates (Sept 28th - Oct 1st , 2021), unless the full refund is requested up to certain date.
Further information about the postponement to 2021, the updated program and the new calendar will be available soon at the conference web.
In order to keep the momentum and the event alive during this extended preparation stage, the BSBF team will be arranging live, interactive webinars in the months to come. The first BSBF webinar will be held next June 23rd, 2020 and it will be focused on BSOs and new National industrial and procurement measures of the Large Scientific Organisations as a result of the pandemic situation.
