Dear EQUIP participants and friends,
We hope that you are safe, healthy, and finding some peace at this stressful time.
We are writing to share the plans for the EQUIP 2021 Conference. After the unfortunate, but necessary, postponement of the conference scheduled initially for 2020, we hoped to be able to gather in person in Thessaloniki in 2021. However, with the ongoing uncertainty around the COVID-19 pandemic, on/regarding how the vaccination process will develop, or what would be the status of travelling, meeting and conducting an indoor event in the following months, it appears risky to plan to gather in large numbers, in person, by June. In addition, the continuing status of the pandemic may make it difficult for many of us to commit to an in-person conference—especially now, as many may face job turbulence, economic pressures, university spending freezes, uncertain travel and research funding, and more.
In light of these constraints and concerns, we have decided to hold the EQUIP2021 conference virtually.
We did not reach this conclusion lightly. From the very early steps of organizing the conference we have aimed for this first EQUIP event to be a platform for the Qualitative Research in Psychology community to meet, exchange views and enhance collaborations.
Given the situation, however, our primary concern is now to alleviate uncertainty and provide participants with as much safety and clarity as possible, as in advance in time as possible. By making this decision now, we can better plan and provide an online experience: the online format will preserve the opportunities for established scholars, new scholars and students to showcase their research and gain invaluable feedback. In due time we will come back to you with more information on how the online conference will work.
We understand these news may be depriving us from the live, onsite experience we all hoped for. And as this may come as a disappointment, we feel it is fair enough to recalculate the event’s expenses and redefine the conference fees, reducing them as much as possible. You may find more information about the new registration fee policy and the difference refund process HERE.
In any case, we plan to use this unusual circumstance to be nimble, inventive, and to collectively reimagine the conference in exciting and heretofore impossible ways.
On behalf of all the EQUIP community, we look forward to seeing you in June 2021, on screen, where film and media scholars always live! And we hope to see you in person at the next EQuiP conference in 2022.
