The 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 Incubator meetings:
Target emerging topics and fields
Function to further the interest and support of promising topic areas, assessing the broader implications of the topic for future research and application and exploring possibilities for greater inclusion and propagation of the topic
Encourage extensive formal and informal discussion while establishing a sense of community
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.
Propose a New Incubator Meeting
OSA continuously strives to expand the incubator meeting program to examine new and burgeoning topics. Please use this form to propose an incubator meeting you would be interested in hosting or a topic area you would recommend OSA explore.
