C*Sci2022 Program Details

Return to C*Sci 2022

The schedule below provides insight into the formal program, including session descriptions and speakers (a few details still forthcoming).

In addition to the formal program, expect bonus sessions and connection opportunities throughout the day – you never know when you might be invited to take part in a trivia pop-up, a mini-dance party, a stretch (your mind and body) break, or a “hot topics” coffee chat.

Each day’s activities will take place on the same, single Zoom line: one click will give registrants access to all sessions. Registration is required, but is more accessible than you may assume – see our equity-oriented pricing options and register here.

CLOSING PLENARY: Doing Science Better, Together


Leading scientific societies are joining together to embrace and elevate research-based public partnerships, such as through the American Geophysical Union’s (AGU) new initiatives on Community Science. We invite a panel of scientists from this coalition to share how they have approached their research, as well as what they have learned and continue to learn about working equitably with communities of all scales. Together, we will explore a vision and opportunity for the powerful change that Associations can make to support science done by, for, and with members of the public.

Host: Raj Pandya, Thriving Earth Exchange, American Geophysical Union

Thursday

Hallway


Linger to follow up on connections and conversations, and make plans to build on new relationships into the next year.
