Status List of 2020 Social and Behavioral Science Conferences

Amid concerns about the spread of the new coronavirus and its accompanying disease, COVID-19, mass gatherings around the world are cancelling their public events, sometimes with virtual options or sometimes just outright. Most notably, the South by SouthWest (SXSW) and SXSW EDU festivals in Austin, Texas were cancelled. Since conferences are a vital part of the current global academic ecosystem, and these too are being cancelled, Social Science Space will collect and list cancelled social and behavioral science conferences on this page.
