As you may already know, each year the International Meteor Organization (IMO) organizes a conference that is unique in itself, i.e. a conference that creates a space where both amateurs and professionals attend lectures and share their experience and expertise in meteor science. Like in 2020, the annual IMC took place online this year.

Most of the authors authorized us to share the video of their talks online: click the titles below to access the videos.
