This event has passed.

This is the second of three online seminars we are hosting (1.5 hours each). Each event is based on one of our core themes, developed at the last workshop in Stromness, Orkney. The aim is to get a quick update on current ISSMER member activities with the hope of bringing as many of us together to discuss our latest work and ideas.

We invite you to join us online, but please note that places are limited.
