CSMLS Virtual Events
Keeping you up-to-date and connected to your profession.
CSMLS Virtual events are interactive, connecting people sharing an online environment at a specific date and time, rather than meeting in a physical location.
You’ll get all the valuable education from subject matter experts and connect with like-minded people from the comfort of your own home or lab, without the added cost of travel and accommodations.
All past Virtual Events are available as on-demand webinars in the CSMLS Learning Centre.
Note: On-demand webinars are available in English only.
