How to Participate

Attending Talks

Talks are held via zoom, typically around breakfast time on the West Coast of the Americas, lunch time on the East Coast of the Americas, and in the afternoon/evening in Europe and the Middle East.

Announcements and reminders are sent out to our email list preceding each talk with a link to register for the zoom meetings. You can also follow the official VIAHSS twitter account for updates.

We encourage attendees to ask questions in a spirit of genuine curiosity and to freely share their knowledge with presenters, keeping in mind that some speakers may be presenting work at very early stage in their research. We aim to foster a forum that is generous, kind, and welcoming.
