SAGES ASM OnLine. Research Solutions from Scotland’s Geosciences.

Featuring daily @noon public webinars on COP26 and the Climate Emergency from;

Kersti Berge, Scot Gov. Director of Energy and Climate Change

Finlo Cottier (SAMS) and Francesco Bertoldi (Scottish Government). Arctic matters: Scotland and the New North.

Francesca Osowska OBE, CEO NatureScot (formerly Scottish Natural Heritage). Build back better. Reimagine the future. Nature is key to Scotland’s green recovery action plan.

We invite all SAGES and SEFARI members and many more of you – student, professor and everyone in between, individually or in groups – to showcase a highlight of their work for the SAGES/SEFARI community online. Highlights could be about a research project, a scientific or technical breakthrough, a report on a recently published paper, a collaborative initiative between SAGES and other partners, a creative interdisciplinary project, an industry placement, an outreach or public engagement activity, or a research visit.

Our solutions-based theme is timed to meet the opportunities and challenges around the Glasgow UN Climate Change COP26 in November 2021, and the Kunming UN Biodiversity COP15 in spring 2021. Joint solutions are vital.

We bring together our highlights in an online showcase format, to share, inspire and engage our community in the absence of being able to network and exchange information face to face.

Submissions must be completed on the provided template, designed to encourage clear and concise summaries that can be understood and appreciated by those across all areas of Geosciences, and to ensure that they can be easily read on a variety of screens. Some sessions ask for a two-minute pre-recorded commentary to accompany your submission.

Live 60 min presentations/discussion/Q&A sessions (via Zoom) will be held for each area during the days of 24 – 26 November. Each session will be organised slightly differently depending on the number of submissions in the theme, with some allowing short introductions by each author before opening for discussion, others opening straight to questions to the authors, and others being used to discuss the activities within that theme across SAGES.

Photo competition

Now that you have registered for the SAGES ASM, we encourage you to join in with our photo competition.

There is no theme for the photo competition, all entries welcomed – though seeing our colleagues “in the field” or their views “from the field” always goes down well! Whether your “field” is a wide-open space, a laboratory, or an urban setting – especially at a time when many are longing to return to “our field”!

With your permission all entries will be displayed on a carousel between sessions.

Entry deadline: Wednesday 18 November 2020
