The British APL Association arranged this series of webinars in place of the regular monthly live meetings in response to the restrictions imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Each Webinar lasts around an hour. The format is flexible but so far a single presentation followed by a Q&A session seems to work. The webinars are recorded and subsequently published on YouTube. At the end there may be an open discussion on any topic anyone would like to raise.
