16th EASE General Assembly and Conference – Valencia, Spain

It is our intention to hold the 16th EASE General Assembly and Conference from 24-26 June 2022 in Valencia, Spain. Assuming that COVID restrictions allow, this will be an in person event, but following the success of our last two virtual events, we intend to incorporate an online element to encourage those who will be unable to travel.

The Programme has not been finalised yet, so please check back for more details.

EASE usually holds a European conference every two years. The pandemic has somewhat disrupted the normal conference cycle, with us holding our first ever virtual conference in 2020, and then repeating it in 2021.

Recent previous conferences were held in:

The first EASE conference was held in 1982: see our list of past conferences, together with an EASE specialty – the overnight newsletter. Ranging from the scurrilous to quirky, these give a light-hearted view of each day’s happenings at conferences down the years.
