Conference 2020

Beat SCAD Conference – cancelled

Updated 17 October 2020

Following government announcements and guidelines about the Covid-19 pandemic earlier in 2020, Beat SCAD Trustees took the difficult decision to postpone this year’s Conference. It was very disappointing for those who had booked to attend, but the safety and wellbeing of delegates and speakers was our highest priority.

Continuing Covid-19 restrictions and social distancing measures have made it impossible to reschedule the Conference with confidence that it will go ahead, so we have decided to refund all delegate tickets, rather than keep the money indefinitely.

If you haven’t previously requested a refund, we will be contacting you to organise refunds for all booked tickets for the conference. If you booked tickets and don’t hear from us by 24 October 2020 please check your Junk or Spam folders for an email from If you can’t find an email, please email us at or

Virtual research update 7 November

Although we are disappointed not to be able to run the Conference in the near future, we’d love you to join us at our virtual event as Beat SCAD celebrates our fifth birthday on Saturday 7 November. This will include a review of recent SCAD research developments, and provide an opportunity to put your questions to the UK SCAD experts. There are more details here and we hope that you will be able to join us then.
