Spring '19 ISIE-SC Virtual Networking Registration
Since we had a great networking time with you at our first Virtual Networking event last spring, we want to keep up this great new tradition! Therefore, the International Society for Industrial Ecology student chapter (ISIE-SC) is hosting the second Virtual Networking event this March! We are excited to again connect fellow students & post-docs who are engaged in important and interesting research around the globe. So much can be gained from learning about each other's perspectives and methods.
Conferences are very useful events for sharing ideas, cutting-edge research, and networking. However, they don't happen very frequently, can be costly to attend, and incur travel-related environmental impacts. Of course we can read each other's publications, but discussing while the work is in progress would be more beneficial! Plus, we're fun people!
Therefore, ISIE-SC would like to connect industrial ecology student researchers from around the globe, harnessing the power of the internet. It will be similar to striking up brief and interesting conversations at a conference cocktail* hour.
To participate, please fill out the registration form below. Based on your research interests and hours of availability, we will schedule Skype calls with 5 matching researchers. The calls will last 15 minutes, with 5 minutes breaks in between. Plan on spending 5 minutes to introduce your work, 5 minutes to hear about their work, and the last 5 minutes to discuss opportunities for further collaborations. We will attempt to consolidate the conversations to keep your schedule compact!
At the conclusion of registration, the coordinators will email you a custom conversation schedule, and provide the Skype usernames, email addresses, and a links to their professional profiles, etc. Throughout the Virtual Networking event, ISIE-SC coordinators will be available on Skype and email to troubleshoot and offer advice! After the event, we will seek your feedback and suggestions. If participants like the event, we will host it regularly!
Thank you -- have a great time virtual networking!
*Make your own cocktail, if you like :)
