Digital Forum — a virtual extension of the in-person experience

An essential benefit of a meeting is the ability to network and talk-indepth with other attendees, speakers and poster presenters. As a hybrid meeting, the digital forum provides opportunities for in person and virtual attendees to make those professional connections. 

We are pleased to offer a digital forum, an extension of hallway conversations and post-session discussion through the slack platform.


Continue the Conversation

We know the value of remaining in the room after a technical session or poster presentation has ended to ask questions of presenters. A digital forum, powered by Slack, enables similar, extended discussion and engagement with speakers and attendees that flows easily across time zones.

Authentication Required

Access to networking is available to logged in and registerd technical attendees. Please login now to participate
