Colin Marshall (UW Seattle) and Sinan Dogramaci (UT Austin) are adopting a practice of making videoconferencing a regular part of colloquium series and conferences they organize and are calling on other organizers to do the same. Their recent guest post in Daily Nous lays out the basics of their proposed practice, which includes having a significant percentage (at least 15%) of talks presented remotely instead of using air travel and promoting more local talks in parallel with efforts to address climate impact on a larger scale from an institutional standpoint.
