A very important element of the ISSCR annual meeting is networking with colleagues from across the stem cell field. First, fill out your profile completely and accurately so that you can network with other attendees. In the Communication Center, you can "connect" with other attendees and send private messages. Learn more about communicating with attendees in our Attendee User Guide. Secondly, visit our three forums that offer distinct chat rooms for unique conversations. Learn more about other networking opportunities.
Scientific Forum: Five chat rooms will house conversations on a variety of topics. Attendees are encouraged to join these chats to continue conversations started in the scientific sessions. Bring your questions and comments about the research you have seen presented, discuss your own research, consider new collaborations, reach out to new people and find old friends. This is your space to connect with your stem cell science peers. View the schedule.
Junior Investigator Forum: Junior Investigators are invited to join a hosted chat on a variety of topics during the meeting, or drop in any time to join an open chat to connect socially, to collaborate scientifically, or to just relax and browse the conversations between sessions. View the schedule.
Conversation Forum: Meet and interact with attendees who share a common interest. View the schedule.
