Important Practical Information about ICEHL-21

In 2020, the organizing committee of ICEHL-21 made the decision to host the conference in 2021 as an online conference. After careful consideration, and taking the feedback of participants into account, the organizing committee has made the following practical decisions:


The conference will be hosted online between 7-11 June, 2021, with 7 June being reserved for workshops. During the main conference (8-11 June), each participant has been allocated a 20-minute slot between 13:00 and 16:45 (GMT+1). During the 20-minute time slot, speakers may either play a pre-recorded lecture video, or give a live presentation of 10-15 minutes, followed by 5-10 minutes of discussion.  

The keynote lectures (45 minutes + 15 minutes discussion) will be live at the following times: 

  • Tuesday, 8 June, 17:00-18:00 (GMT+1): Claudia Clardige 

  • Wednesday, 9 June, 17:00-18:00 (GMT+1): Bettelou Los 

  • Thursday, 10 June, 17:00-18:00 (GMT+1): Peter Petré 

  • Friday, 11 June, 17:00-18:00 (GMT+1): George Walkden 

The full, updated programme of ICEHL-21 will be published on our website and e-mailed to participants in due course. 

Fees and registration

The new registration fee will be 50 EUR for the full conference; the fee covers a range of costs, including technical support before and during the conference. Payment and registration will take place via Paylogic and the link to Paylogic will be made available on the website in due course.
