We are currently using Zoom video conferencing for our network seminars. We encourage people to attend seminars from New Zealand universities’ videoconference rooms (listed below) but you may also participate from your desktop. Members of the public are welcome.

To register for a seminar or to enquire about meeting technology, please email Seminar Coordinator Melanie Milicich (ensure that all seminar registration emails include the seminar name, date and venue).

Note: If you are bringing your class to a seminar the whole class must be registered with Melanie at least 5 working days before the seminar to ensure we have a big enough room booked for you.

eSocSci seminars, excluding post-seminar Q&A and discussions, are recorded and available to view for registered eSocSci members on the eSocSci.org.nz website. By booking a place at a seminar or turning up to a seminar, attendees are giving implicit consent for the recording and distribution of the seminar within the esocsci membership.
