AusSeabed Webinar Series


This year, in response to the global pandemic and cancellation of the Australian Marine Science Association annual conference, the Steering Committee has decided to host a series of webinars to take the place of the annual general meeting and workshop.


These webinars will include lightning talks from some of those who submitted abstracts to our AMSA seabed mapping session and incrementally touch off on the workshop and administrative activities that were originally scheduled to accompany this year’s conference. See below for the session themes.


The webinars will be hosted between June and September from 11 AM AEST (10:30 AM ACST, 09:00 AM AWST or 1:00 PM NZST) on the last Thursday of the month and run for an hour and forty-five minutes. Participation is free but as attendance is capped you will need to register for the events using the links below. The session themes have been finalised and final programs will be released the month prior to the session to give flexibility for speaker scheduling.
