Attending scientific conferences is an ideal opportunity to network, meet contacts, and explore recent developments in your professional field. However, many participants come to meetings unprepared and are overwhelmed during the meeting. These aspects are often different whether participants are students, post-docs, first-time or long-time attendees. Learning how to effectively maneuver through a conference is essential. The best way to learn the most effective ways to get the most out of meetings is to talk with other attendees. During this session, a diverse panel of participants will solicit questions and discuss ways to make meetings low-stress and highly productive.

6:00 pm – 7:00 pm                                       Joint Workshop                                                Meeting 6&7           


Scientists are taught to communicate according to prescribed rules required of their profession. However, it is becoming increasingly critical that they also be able to communicate with nonscientists including regular citizens who have no scientific education, policy makers, and of course, the media. In this short workshop we will explain why it is so critical for each of us to learn how to speak to these different groups of people. Our aim is to provide an opportunity for SIVB members to learn about what works and what doesn’t in terms of working with these diverse groups. Resources will be provided to facilitate such interactions.
