SafeComp 2021 to be fully virtual
We have made the difficult decision of making SafeComp 2021 a fully virtual conference. The ongoing risks and uncertainty of COVID-19 has meant travel for many is not possible.
We have a fantastic conference planned, and will be using the Whova app to stream the keynotes, support networking, set up a virtual exhibition space and more.
Student Support Grants supported by Intel Labs
Thanks to generous sponsorship from Intel Labs, SafeComp 2021 is pleased to offer a limited number of Student Support Grants.
The grants provide a 50% waiver for registrations. These grants will support more students to attend the conference. We are particularly interested in receiving applications from under-represented groups.
SafeComp 2021 registration is live
Registration is now live for SafeComp 2021. You can register to attend in-person (in York, UK) or register for a virtual place.
The early bird deadline is extended until 23 June 2021 (11:59pm BST).
