42nd Ims Workshop

International Mediterranean Survey Workshop

42nd edition
Deel deze pagina
The bi-annual International Mediterranean Survey workshops have, since 2001, brought together an expanding circle of field survey practitioners and students from Europe and elsewhere for presentation of (preliminary) results and free-ranging discussion of issues of interest. Having started out in the Low Countries, the workshops have since been held alternately in many countries of Mediterranean Europe – Spain, Italy, Turkey, Greece, France and Croatia – as well as in Austria and Germany. Starting from 2020 we are running ‘hybrid’ meetings to allow people to participate online. The email distribution list, managed at Groningen, currently holds over 300 names. Meetings are very informal, and presentations by students are encouraged.



Presentation slots are 30 minutes (20 minute paper and 10 minute discussion)
