16 — 19 October 2020

Combined Scientific Congress

This Congress is a unique occasion held every five years when the NZSA and ASA join together to hold a single scientific meeting.


Tēnā koutou katoa, Greetings to you all.

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the postponement of the NZSA and ASA Combined Scientific Congress due to be held 16-19th October 2020 in Wellington.

As I’m sure you can all appreciate this has not been an easy decision, but with the current coronavirus pandemic, we cannot hold a such a meeting in these uncertain times.

The NZSA and ASA Combined Scientific Congress will now be held in Wellington in 2022 and we would be delighted if you could plan to join us then.

We look forward to welcoming you to Wellington in 2022.

Ngā mihi nui
