The British Association for Islamic Studies and the Aga Khan University Institute for the Study of Muslim Civilisations have taken the decision to postpone the BRAIS 2020 Conference in response to the escalation of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak.  
Many of our delegates are facing increasingly stringent travel restrictions and the situation is developing very quickly. As disappointed as we are to be postponing this much-anticipated conference, continuing would not be in the best interests of our delegates and we feel the decision to postpone is therefore unavoidable.


BRAIS invites academic publishers from across the world to join us for our 2020 Annual Conference in the stunning surroundings of the Aga Khan University's Institute for the Study of Muslim Civilisations, London.

If you are an academic publisher with interests in any aspect of Islamic Studies then we encourage you to reserve a table as part of our Publisher Exhibition.

The beautiful London venue, just ten minutes from Kings Cross Station, will undoubtedly attract a large volume of delegates to our 2020 Annual Conference making this is a unique opportunity to engage with scholars from the UK and across the world.

The Publisher Exhibition will be located at the heart of the conference offering publishers a chance to engage consistently with conference delegates throughout the two-day programme.
