Extended Abstract

Like all good learning experiences, OLC is very interested in amplifying the ways that we can engage with new ideas and the community across different modalities. As such, the onsite meetups are meant to be a direct connection to the findings, ideation, and collaborations happening in the virtual summits two weeks prior. You are encouraged to attend any and all parts of the summits and the meetups, with no requirement to attend the summit to make the most of the meetups, and vice versa.

We encourage you to explore both spaces as you can to contribute to the shaping of new collaborations and future calls to action for this special interest group. Excited to access both spaces? Register for an All-Access Pass to be sure to gain access to attend both!

The Research Summit Meet-up at the onsite conference at Gaylord National (Washington D.C. area) will be held on Thursday, October 7. Onsite Meet-ups are located in the Speed Networking Lounge (Maryland Ballroom Exhibit Hall).
