Plenary Speakers

Conference Speakers

We're doing things a bit differently for the first joint conference of our two communities. Our plenary speakers may given short joint or independent talks, but will engage in a bit of dialogue, with one another, with a moderator, and with you. Check back in the next few days to learn who our sets of speakers will be!

Moderated and Open for Questions Beyond the Parallel Play
Each panel will have two or three exciting speakers - established and emerging leaders in their field. The focus is on a conversation between and among them and audience members on where we go from here. Our communities have different meetings, different journals, and divergent paths, but we are looking forward toward opportunities for engagement and collaboration.
