ESAN has today published its latest Annual Report and Accounts. ESAN ARA 2019-20. For ESAN, this year has seen some firsts. Some were negative. In the light of the Covid-19 pandemic we decided to cancel our April 2020 physical meeting for the first time ever. Some were more positive: we held our first virtual meeting in July 2020 which had an excellent attendance and produced some very stimulating discussions. In light of this meeting, and the feedback received, we are thinking about how to do future meetings virtually and also what scope there is for additional digital ESAN activity.
