In light of the current situation, we have cancelled the Fourth Conference on South Asia, which had been scheduled for the 22-24 April 2020 in Dublin, Ireland. We do not believe that given the gravity of the situation, we will be able to reorganise the conference later in the year. All registered participants will have their registration fees fully refunded.
In case of any queries, write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Stay home, and stay well!
