Meet the Plenary Speakers
New to this year’s meeting, a limited number of students and early career scientists will have the opportunity to meet with the plenary speakers. This event will allow people the unique chance to interact with the plenary speakers and ask questions in a small group. These events will be scheduled Monday, February 28 through Friday, March 4, 2022. If interested, sign-up when registering. Registration for this event will stay open until capacity is reached. A small number of people who registered for each speaker will be selected through a random lottery and contacted via email.
Meet Your Agency Program Manager
This is a chance to meet with program managers from U.S. federal scientific agencies and have an informal conversation about careers, funding, writing, and reviewing proposals or any other topic that comes up. Groups of three to four participants will be assigned to meet with a particular program manager. Participation is limited to early career scientists and students close to completing their degrees; one event per person. Registration is free but strictly required because of limited capacity. Please indicate interest by checking the appropriate box when registering.
Fostering communication among students and providing information about career opportunities is an important part of this meeting. The career center returns in virtual form to OSM 2022, allowing students to meet each other in a relaxed setting using the networking platform "Gathertown" to facilitate interactions. Information on activating this tool will be available closer in mid-February 2022.
