OSA Incubator Meetings

OSA incubator meeting logo OSA recently initiated this new form of meeting to provide unique and focused experiences, allowing researchers, engineers and business leaders of niche fields a valuable opportunity to meet and discuss advances, challenges and opportunities regarding their research.

OSA Incubators:

Incubator Meeting Gears Pic
  • Target emerging topics and fields that do not have the critical mass needed to support an OSA topical meeting structure.
  • Function to further the interest and support of promising topic areas, assessing the broader implications of the topic for future research and application.
  • Explore possibilities for greater inclusion and propagation of the topic into peer-reviewed topical meeting and/or congresses or conferences.
  • Encourage extensive formal and informal discussion while establishing a sense of community among participants.
  • Offer a valuable means of disseminating information and ideas in a way that cannot be achieved through the usual channels of communication – publications and presentations at large scientific meetings.
