Eighteen educational sessions over 4 days led by top industry experts complementing two insightful keynote speakers are the heart of the SSP Annual Meeting. Wrapping up the meeting, the Scholarly Kitchen Chefs will lead a wide-ranging discussion picking up on the themes presented throughout this year's Annual Meeting and looking into the future. Sessions will include live Q&A with the speakers and will be accessible on demand after the initial broadcast.
We’re pulling out all the stops when it comes to networking at the meeting. Real-time chat, persistent discussion forums and integrated 1:1 video calls enable attendees to build real relationships. Attendees can network informally with fellow attendees in the REMO platform, moving through the interface to interact via video with different groups, easily seeing who else is at the table before joining. Small Group Discussions enable attendees to choose from a predetermined topic or join an open table and start their own discussion. Guided networking sessions will provide an opportunity for attendees to interact with one another, discuss shared interests and meet new people. Attendees can also join a Community Group with regular check-ins to discuss trending topics, share experiences, ask questions, or act as a sounding board.
Virtual posters will be available for viewing throughout the meeting. Accompanying each poster is a 5-minute video presentation. During the Poster Session, you can text and video chat in real time with presenters as you browse the various posters.
