ISTVS Digital Event Series 2021

The ISTVS is launching a digital event series — alternating weekly informal student-led research seminars and terramechanics bites by established researchers. The events will also offer support for authors and the audience on how to get the best out of our conference platform for our 20th International and  9th Americas Conference in September.

The events will be on Wednesdays at a time chosen to make it possible for all international colleagues to attend: midday in Europe-Africa — mornings in North America — evenings in East Asia. Recordings of some of the events will be posted to the ISTVS website and to Youtube so sign whether or not you’re sure you can attend.Use the registration links to sign up. Our event platform is Hopin: you’ll be asked to create an account which you can use for all events in this digital series as well as for our annual conference in September.

Not just attendees, but participants 

Our events are best when there’s a mix of new and returning folks. Each event will include some combination of talks with Q&A. All of our sessions are peer-led—consider becoming a facilitator for an event. If you are at a university, your post-graduate researchers are invited to take advantage of the post-graduate seminars to practice presenting their work in a friendly, low-stake environment with post-grads from around the world.
