Mentoring Program Applications Open + Other WOS 2023 Updates

For those of you who use this blog to keep up with the latest WOS news, there are several updates related to our 2023 meeting that we don’t want you to miss!

First, applications for our 2023 Mentoring Program for students and early-career professionals are now open. Participants in this program will receive free registration and travel funding to attend the 2023 WOS meeting; WOS membership for one year following the award; individual career mentoring; special professional development webinars and workshops; and networking opportunities to meet professionals from diverse fields. Please note we are also currently seeking volunteer mentors to participate in this program!

Second, in case you missed the announcement about this earlier this fall, this will be a hybrid meeting. We will have a full schedule of in-person events at Muhlenberg College in Allentown, Pennsylvania, but we will also be accepting abstracts for virtual oral presentations. The call for abstracts will open approximately January 1; please keep checking the meeting website for more details on the meeting’s virtual component as they become available.

Finally, proposals for symposiums, workshops, and special events are being accepted until January 31. Now is your chance to help shape the meeting program, so please check out the information on the website and send us your ideas! Prospective vendors interested in selling items or promoting a business at the meeting are also invited to contact Peter Saenger at petersaenger@muhlenberg.edu to discuss arrangements.

We can’t wait to see you in Allentown (or online) next June!
