AMINOR holds 4-5 groups discussions every year, each of them lasting between 2 to 4 hours. These afternoon discussions aim at gathering researchers and students to discuss a topic of interest based on recent research articles or presentations from guest researchers. Afternoon discussions allow member to assess and reflect on analytical methods and conceptual advances linked to central problems within different monitoring and management schemes. Members can attend the afternoon discussions through videoconferencing.

Every week (unless other activities are planned), AMINOR holds a lunch discussion, which is a 45-min informal gathering at lunch time during which researchers and students discuss a topic that is either based on a paper or a presentation. All discussions occur online.
