Due to the Corona virus, we will have to cancel/postpone the DASTS 2020 conference to be held at CBS, May 14-15. We are currently exploring the opportunities for postponing the conference one year, if possible in coordination with the Nordic STS conference, and will get back to you as soon as possible with more information.


We are truly sorry for having to cancel because we were really looking forward to it but we hope that we can all resume our activities with renewed spirit and energy in 2021.
