Infographic for ELSIconversations: Making Connections, Starting Conversations,



ELSIconversations debuts with a series of six themed one-hour networking discussions on ELSI research. Join us from 12:00-1:00 pm ET / 9:00-10:00 am PT starting Friday, February 26.

This initial series of discussions focuses on presentations that were originally accepted for the canceled 2020 ELSI Congress and are now available as ~15-minute videos. Please watch the videos you are interested in before attending the related discussion.  They will not be shown during the discussion.

The presenters will answer questions about their research and take part in an open discussion with all attendees.  Please bring your questions, join the discussion, and expect to network with your colleagues. We hope you will make new connections and start new conversations on ELSI research!

The schedule of the talks and a link to each video are below. Please register for each ELSIconversations event you would like to attend. Contact us at [email protected] with any questions.
