News and events
The MATSDA Conference intended for Florence in June 2022 has been postponed until June 2023 because of continuing uncertainty about the viability of a face to face conference there during the ongoing pandemic. We are looking into the possibility of a conference and/or workshop in the UK in the autumn of 2022 and hope to make an announcement soon.
