vVMSG 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.

Presentations were split into talks (10 minutes) and flash talks (1 minute) that were pre-recorded, streamed in real time to the conference attendees, and then followed by live Q&A’s. The virtual format enabled us to make a permanent record of some of the talks via the VMSG YouTube channel for those presentations where the author’s opted in to this service. You can see a selection of the talks below with links to playlists for the different science sessions.
