HYBRID SCIENTIFIC SESSIONS
The 2022 AAAS Annual Meeting will be held in a hybrid format. All scientific sessions will be presented virtually.
Each scientific session will be comprised of 3 pre-recorded Spotlight Videos, each highlighting research of an individual speaker. These videos will also include Q&As with the session moderator. Spotlight Videos will be released in advance of the live programming in February. See some of the 2021 meeting Spotlight Videos released on our YouTube Channel throughout this month as a reference and inspiration.
In February, there will be a online live 45-minute panel discussion with all speakers and moderators, during which speakers will ask each other questions about the topic based on their experience. Attendees will also have the opportunity to submit questions to be answered in real time.
WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR:
o Research relevant to current events and issues of public interest
o A diverse and interdisciplinary panel
o Work backed by rigorous data to foster trust in science
o Good communicators to promote science literacy
o How does your work Empower With Evidence?
Important Notes: Try to confirm all panel speakers and provide meaningful bios about them before the submission deadline.
Complete your submission by the deadline of June 20. Late or incomplete submissions will not be accepted.
