Future ASAS courses

ASAS course Brussels, 13-14 March 2020 now CANCELLED


The ASAS Executive Committee and Course faculty regret to inform all participants registered for the upcoming ASAS core course on 13-14th March in Brussels that this has now been CANCELLED. The decision has been taken in light of the growing reports on increasing numbers of people infected worldwide with the fast spreading virus COVID-19. The international travelling restrictions imposed in many countries mean that a number of course faculty members and registered delegates are unable to travel as planned.

ASAS has decided to either a) reimburse the registration fee or b) transfer the full fee towards the next course later on in the year (date/location to be confirmed) for those delegates wishing to attend.


Further information on the next planned ASAS course will be uploaded onto the website in due course.
