ILRS Virtual World Tour 2020
November 02-06, 2020

In place of an ILRS Workshop this November, the ILRS wanted to take the opportunity to try something different and look in detail at a selection of stations in the global network.

Therefore, we are planning an online 'Virtual World Tour', to be held November 2-6, 2020, to virtually visit 5 stations in 5 days, stopping at:

  • Graz, Austria
  • Greenbelt MD, USA
  • Simosato, Japan
  • Yarragadee, Australia
  • Zimmerwald, Switzerland

Each two-hour session will consist of an introductory presentation about the station followed by a tour of the site highlighting instrumentation, software, safety, automation, operations, as well as current issues and future plans. These tours will include a mixture of pre-recorded and live presentations with an opportunity for questions.

Attendees will be required to register for each session they plan to attend. Registration will be available through the workshop website shortly.

Logistics:

We are planning to use Microsoft Teams for these virtual meetings. More information about this software is available at:
