This virtual workshop will bring together diverse perspectives from multiple disciplines to explore advantages, barriers, gaps, and opportunities in the future of scientific conferencing for the behavioral and social sciences. Areas of particular focus will include technological innovations that enable virtual and hybrid approaches, and the impact of these approaches on diversity, equity, inclusion, accessibility, and belonging (DEIAB) of participants and attendees as well as environmental sustainability. The workshop itself aims to leverage and model innovative evidence-informed approaches to showcase the potential of a virtual platform for learning, networking, and participant engagement. The overarching aims of the workshop are to facilitate interdisciplinary communication and networking, to identify cross-cutting scientific gaps regarding the role of behavioral and social science factors in scientific convenings, and to inform practical strategies for designing effective and engaging scientific conferences and meetings.
