VMSG runs and supports many scientific events throughout the year. One of the highlights of the calendar is the Annual VMSG meeting, held at a different UK academic institution each year. These meetings are extremely well attended by 200+ delegates, with presentations on the latest research delivered over 3 days.

VMSG 2021

VMSG 2021 was a virtual event in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, held across the afternoons of January 6th – 8th 2021. The VMSG committee acted as the local organising committee, and the virtual meeting was hosted by the GeolSoc via Zoom.

Keynote speakers included:
VMSG award winner Professor Ed Llewellin, Durham University
Willy Aspinall award winner Dr Ailsa Naismith, University of Bristol
Zeiss Postdoc award winner Dr Jamie Farquharson, University of Miami
