The School of Surveying runs a seminar series showcasing projects and results related to the School research themes. Our speakers are from within the School and wider University, as well as nationally and internationally renowned visitors.
The seminar series normally runs weekly during semester time (the current slot is Thursdays at 12 noon in the L1 lecture theatre).
Some seminars are streamed and recorded – where this is provided you will find a weblink at the bottom of a speaker's poster, which is accessed by clicking on the 'Title' in the listing below. Remote access is monitored by the University of Otago’s eConferencing department, which can provide technical support (via Zoom or on 03 479 8997).
