Scientific Liaison Coalition Virtual Roundtable:

Recent Experiences Planning Virtual Scientific Meetings

Abstract 

The global COVID-19 pandemic caused significant disruptions, delays, and cancellations of scientific meetings in 2020. You are invited to attend a facilitated roundtable where leaders of three organizations will share their recent experiences in transitioning from the traditional ‘in person’ scientific meeting to a virtual experience. The goal is to engage in a discussion about:

  • Criteria that were used for virtual platform selection and agenda planning
  • How essential meeting components (e.g. networking, poster sessions, vendor exhibits) were addressed
  • Key learnings when planning and executing this format
  • Current thinking regarding the ongoing impact of the pandemic on scientific meetings in 2021

The target audience for this roundtable includes leaders and volunteers involved in the planning of their scientific organizations’ meetings as well as staff or contractors who support the planning and execution of such meetings.

Speakers

  • Kirk L. Cumpston, DO, President of the American Academy of Clinical Toxicology
  • Elise Madison Lewis, PhD, President of the Society for Birth Defects Research and Prevention
  • Lawrence D. Sloan, CAE, CEO of the American Industrial Hygiene Association

The roundtable will be facilitated by Anne H. Chappelle, PhD, DABT, Chair of the Scientific Liaison Coalition (SLC).

This event is free and open to members of SLC member societies, including members of BDRP, but registration is required.

A list of SLC member societies as well as links to recordings of past SLC webinar may be found on the SLC website: https://www.toxicology.org/slc.asp
