Online Special Events

Online Welcome Reception

Join other delegates for a pre-conference welcome reception. We'll send you a package of digital treats, discuss this year's theme, and walk you through the CGScholar Event Mircosite so you have a rich online experience.

Online Plenary Garden Conversation

Talk with this year's Plenary Speakers in a live question and answer session.

Online Talking Circles

Talking Circles are a distinctive feature of our in-person conference, and this year we are also taking them online. Talking Circles offer an opportunity to meet other delegates face-to-face, and engage in extended discussion about the issues and concerns they feel are of utmost importance to that segment of the Research Network. Participation is open, encouraged, and supported.
