European and North American Users' Meeting 2020

We have pencilled in the week of 21st - 25th September for our 10th Users' Meeting.  This will be a virtual meeting, rather than the usual meetings in Manchester and North America.  We're still working on the format of the meetings but we'll have the usual mix of Kratos and User presentations with ample time for Q&A's, discussion and networking.  As with most of the scientific community, moving the meeting online will be a learning experience.  If you have attended online meetings or conferences since the COVID19 pandemic and have experiences that worked well, we'd like to hear from you! We want to make this meeting the very best we can and are excited by the opportunities presented by this new format.  We will circulate more details about the format of the meeting and how to participate in the coming weeks.
