This issue features 14 pages of highlights from ASE's 2020 Annual Conference, held at the University of Reading in January, with news and information from various strands of the Conference to help those who couldn't attend to benefit from the many sessions and exhibits that were available during the four days.  Also in this issue we feature details about last year's Science on Stage Festival in Portugal, together with news, events and a three-page Prep Room feature from our technician members.
