Online Seminar Series

The APSIM Initiative is pleased to be able to provide an online seminar series.

Since the announcement of the cancellation of the APSIM Symposium and Advanced Training Workshops, we have been working on alternate avenues for delivering the planned event.  We have decided not to proceed with the event online but provide alternative training in 2021.  We are hopefully we can offer an in-person event in 2022.

Given the requests for online training, we have decided to proceed with seminars delivered as recorded videos.  Approximately, every 3-4 weeks, we will be uploading a newly recorded seminar.  We will also provide a link to a GitHub Issue which can be used to comment and/or ask questions on the video.  Depending on the nature of the questions, these will be answered there or an additional video will be recorded.

At the moment, these are the seminars we anticipate to offer this year.
