The GSE UK Virtual Conference for 2020 will take place between 2nd and 12th November and will in place of the annual physical conference that will return in 2021. One of the big differences between this virtual and the physical conference is that there will be no charge to attend. All we ask is that you donate a modest sum of money to our charity for this year, “NHS Charities Together”.
The conference will incorporate keynote presentations and a series of virtual sessions split into the usual work streams. We are planning to hold 150 hour long sessions over the two week period. The date and time of each virtual session is shown on the conference Temporary Agenda that is still being finalised and from October delegates will be allowed to register for each one individually and add them to their “MyGSE” agenda.
Just like the physical conference, if you provide feedback for the sessions you can obtain a CPE certificate from “MyGSE” showing all the sessions you attended.
Call for Papers
The Call for Papers email has been sent out. We still need volunteers to present at the virtual sessions and so if you have an idea for one please contact the chairperson for the stream in which it would be most applicable. If you haven't received your copy it can be seen here.
This year as our conference charity we will be supporting "NHS Charities Together". This year, being a virtual conference, it has to be a little different. The conference is still happening but is free of charge to everyone, not just GSE UK Members. It will require a lot of effort from our team of volunteers to put on the conference of around 120 sessions over a two week period. Therefore, we hope that you will show your appreciation for this mainframe related education and the efforts of our volunteers and donate a small sum at

Every year the GSE UK Conference chooses 2 charities to donate raffle and prize money to. The 2019 Conference donated £2361 to Barnardo's and £2361 to Mencap. Barnardo's was chosen for the wonderful work it does protecting children and supporting young people ...
... and Mencap for their work in valuing and supporting people with a learning disability and their families and carers.
