July has started and that brings the reminder that the SERVSIG community would have been meeting downunder for the SERVSIG 2020 Conference.
Due to the global pandemic, our conference, like many others, could not be held in person and so we have been working away to bring you the latest thinking on the future of service in different ways.

Cancellation of SERVSIG 2020 Conference and Student Research Colloquium
Due to the rapidly changing situation associated with the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent travel restrictions, the SERVSIG 2020 Conference Co-Chairs, in consultation with the SERVSIG Board Co-Chairs, have decided to cancel the SERVSIG 2020 Conference and Student Research Colloquium. We are disappointed that we cannot deliver the conference we have planned and were looking forward to hosting.
If you have any questions regarding the above information, please contact the organisers at firstname.lastname@example.org
UPSIDE DOWN THINKING, DOWN UNDER.
SHAKING UP THE WAY WE LOOK AT CONFERENCES.
Presenters in the concurrent tracks are encouraged to present a maximum of three slides and run their session as a workshop. For those who select the interactive presentation option when submitting papers, this means extra time will be allocated to allow collaborative conversations to occur. The online world will also be used to foster these conversations with a twitter reel as well as a conference app packed full of opportunities to engage.
The future of services spans important industries that underpin the very fabric of human life; health, energy, water, tourism, fishing, agriculture, cyberworlds and many more. These industries will be represented at the conference and you will hear from both scholars and practitioners in these vary industries as they are intertwined through the plenary and concurrent sessions. In most if not all sessions, scholars and practitioners will be intertwined so that theory and practice converge and stimulate new ideas and practices.
GLOBAL COLLEAGUES; GLOBAL PERSPECTIVES
The SERVSIG conference typically attracts scholars from over 30 countries and has been held previously in USA, France, Singapore, UK, Portugal, Finland, Greece and the Netherlands. This diverse group of people are part of a warm community of service scholars who bring both diversity of perspective and unity of purpose to the event.
