There will be student workshops during the meeting. Potential topics will focus on career development (e.g., publication and grant writing, communicating science, different career paths, etc.)
Virtual social events are being planned. These will provide fun, social events for both student and early career meeting participants. Plan on visiting with friends, and meeting new ones, just like the popular in-person mixers – this time electronically. Other activities are being planned, also.
Further details about these events will be provided later.
