Talks are given both by members of the society and by guest speakers.
In workshops we aim to learn from each other, provoking discussion, sharing discoveries, methods used, and information sources that have been useful when researching in particular fields.
"Cabin Fever" meetings will take place until at least March 2021 on the fourth Tuesday of the month at 8pm. These are intended to keep members in touch with each other, and share discoveries and research problems.
The programme may be changed due to the availability of speakers.
