Programme details AND PLANNING for the online congress (IN ‘VIRTUAL HELSINKI’)

SIEF 2021 will be an online-only congress, meaning that all the proposed panels, roundtables and workshops will take place virtually. The Scientific Committee felt that the continuing uncertainties brought on by the world-wide pandemic made hosting an on-site event unfeasible for the following reasons: constant changes in travel restrictions; health and safety issues on the premises; differences in COVID-19 spread and the management of public health policies within different countries; care responsibilities at home (especially for contributors and delegates supporting elderly relatives with increased risk factors, and/or underlying health conditions); financial insecurities (including travel and other insurance policies becoming void with force majeure clauses) etc.

In total, the online programme will include 116 panels and workshops, a digital poster stream, several keynote speakers, innovative (rule breaking?) events, and a unique, Arctic-themed ‘virtual Helsinki’ music portfolio.
