Impactful scientific meetings in times of crisis
In this panel discussion, discover how experts envision the future of scientific exchange in a post-pandemic world.
Conferences play an essential role in the scholarly ecosystem, connecting scientists, fostering collaboration, and bringing new research to light. As such, it is essential that conferences continue in a virtual format throughout the current health crisis, or scientific progress will be held back at a time when it is needed most. In this interactive panel discussion, find out how researchers, societies, and institutions can navigate the current uncertain times and best facilitate the discussion and sharing of valuable early-stage research – without a physical event. Discover some of the benefits of a digital conference format, best practices when hosting a virtual meeting, and advice on how to get the most value out of your next event.
