Registration Open – Virtual Marine Seismology Symposium – March 8-19, 2021

Registration is now open for the Marine Seismology Symposium, which will be held virtually over two weeks, March 8-19th, 2021. There is no registration fee for this meeting but you must register to participate by February 3rd:

The symposium will include plenary science sessions as well as virtual “poster” sessions, all held via Zoom and a website-based meeting platform. The plenaries will be held in about 6 main sessions, each 2-4 hours in length, over the course of the two weeks with at least one session held in a Euro/Asia friendly time zone. Recordings of plenaries will be made available to view shortly after the sessions. “Posters” will be presented via pre-recorded videos along with live moderated sessions. Discussion forums will also be available for further asynchronous interactions. A draft agenda is available on the symposium website:

We would also like to encourage the organization of complementary special interest group discussions and related events, and will facilitate this as much as possible with the resources we have available. Feedback throughout the planning and execution of the Marine Seismology Symposium is always welcome. Please send an email to and your thoughts will be shared with the organizing committee.

We are looking forward to this event and hope you will join us in March! Feel free to send this email on to other mailing lists or potential attendees.
