IAS Update during Covid-19

In keeping with government advice designed to minimise the spread of the coronavirus, we have cancelled all public-facing IAS events, including workshops, seminars and Coffee Mornings, for the remainder of the academic year.

Until such time as we are able to reschedule cancelled events, we will undertake to host our seminars, summits and sandpits virtually.  

  • Missed the IAS Sound Summit 3 Are you listening? Acoustic environments and the politics of sound, noise and silence? Watch the recorded event here.
  • Watch Professor Ellen Wohl's IAS Water Theme lecture on Messy Rivers here.
