IS-GEO Expert Series

The IS-GEO community hosts a monthly technical research presentation series where members of the community share the latest updates to cutting edge results, discuss a technical challenge with the group to brainstorm solutions, and explore topics of interest to people who may be just starting to learn about IS-GEO as a field of study.

Video and audio recordings are shared on this website as they are completed. You can watch the archived presentations using the links in the table below.
