About the APIGA 2021 Program

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, APIGA 2021 will be specially adapted from its original 5-days in-person program into a new format combining virtual participation with a hybrid event day. 

  • APIGA 2021 will take place virtually between 1st October and 12 November 2021, including the hybrid event day.
  • The program will last six (6) weeks. Sessions will take place twice a week with preparatory work in between. 
  • Sessions will tend to be in the latter part of the day to better accommodate the schedules of students and young working professionals.
  • The hybrid event day will allow participants in South Korea to gather in person while all other participants in the region gather online. This takes into account that the pandemic situation is unlikely to allow regional travel to resume while the situation in South Korea remains relatively stable.
  • More details on the APIGA 2021 Program page.
