Conference Networking Sessions – Call for Proposals

The MATSOL Conference Committee is seeking proposals from members to plan and facilitate networking sessions at the MATSOL 2019 Conference.

networking_session2019Networking sessions are informal facilitated sessions that provide opportunities for members to connect and share ideas with other members around areas of common interest. The sessions take place each day of the conference for 30 minutes after the lunch and keynote. A networking session may be repeated on two or three days, to allow conference participants to attend a different session on each day. Networking sessions may have more than one facilitator.

See the 2018 Networking Session list for topic ideas, but we welcome other topics and formats that encourage connection between members, discussion, and sharing.
