Here at the Node and Development, the BSDB Spring meeting is always the first thing to go into our conference calendar, as an institution for the UK developmental biology community. The 2020 meeting, co-organised with the Genetics Society and due to start on Sunday, has just been cancelled due to concerns about spread of Covid-19 (more info will be available soon and we’ll share it here). It joins other recently cancelled developmental biology conferences (such as those in EMBL Heidelberg and Keystone). It seems to us to have been an inevitable decision, if a sad one, and we look forward to the next time a few hundred developmental biologists get together in the bar in Warwick!
