The DSBSoc seminar series provides an opportunity to DSBS members to share their latest work with the society in a more regular manner, between the largest gatherings of our DSBS-related conferences. The seminar series is organized in a bi-monthly series of online talks with two volunteer speakers per seminars, scheduled according to the speakers availabilities. This seminar series was held between 2022 and early 2023 and will restart in 2024.
Presentations from students and early careers are prioritized, but all of our members can give a talk and present their latest work to the society. We strongly encourage our senior members to attend the seminars and engage with our student and early career members on their research.
If you are interested in presenting your work for a future seminar of the DSBSoc seminar series please email us at including a tentative title and overall research topic. When possible, we are trying to gather people by thematic and common scientific interests to promote fruitful exchanges between the participants.
