This year, the conference was supposed to be held in Vancouver, but due to the pandemic of COVID-19, we decided to make it as an online conference.

Venue

The UBC-HKU Summer Theory Conference 2020 is going virtual. We plan to have it as a Zoom webinar, and anyone can join the conference as “participants.”
