Hi all, just an update on the 2020 simulation!

After meeting with the organising committee and taking into account your suggestions/commentaries, we have decided on the following details regarding the eSheffWHO 2020 Conference: Health in A Digital World:

  • Theme: Health in A Digital World
  • Date: May 1-2, 2020 (Friday & Saturday)
  • Time: 11 AM – 3:30 PM  British Summer Time
  • Registration Fee: 3 GBP for Regular Tickets and 5 GBP for Tickets bought from April 20 (secured platform fee + officially stamped certificate)
  • Payment Website: Ticket Link
  • Registration Form: Registration Form
  • Platform: TBA

Please take notice that the earlier you register for the event, the quicker we can assign you a Member State role to help you get started on writing the Position Paper, which helps you qualify for the awards.

Explanation Note on the Registration Fee:

On the survey and previous post we shared it was stated that the entire event will be free of charge. However, we were not able to factor the costs of the platform which is guaranteed to be more secure than our previous platform plan (Zoom). Because of this, the members of the Committee decided to cover the majority of the platform costs, and ask every participant for a smaller registration fee. Further information regarding the platform guidance will be sent out shortly. 

We sincerely apologise for the inconvenience(s) caused by this decision. We are doing our best to provide each and everyone the best opportunity and experience possible from this activity.

By covering your registration fee, you will be provided with the necessary material to prepare you as a delegate (i.e. secured platform access; certificate; welcome pack). Further, we consider internet security and privacy as important measures for this event, and the organising committee decided to use an end-to-end encrypted platform.

We hope that despite this, your commitment in this unique event will not change.  We are looking forward to meeting you and everyone at the online conference.

We hope you are all staying healthy and happy!
