Posters are invited from industry and academia on any stability topics to facilitate additional interaction between attendees and speakers. The afternoon session will be split into smaller workshops on "hot" stability topics to allow active dialogue between delegates which will be summarised and closed out by a panel discussion.

In line with the government advice on social distancing, JPAG has had to take a decision about its future programme of events. Therefore for the forseeable future no symposia will take place as conventional meetings.

JPAG has been working hard to offer its symposia as on-line events, and following a series of very successful virtual symposia events in 2020, we look forward to bringing you more great impactful virtual and in-person symposia events this year.

We look forward to welcoming you to our events soon.
