• National Annual Meeting and Student Research Showcase is now Virtual!!

    The national Sigma Xi Annual Meeting and Student Research Showcase is now virtual (and reduced cost!). This is a great opportunity to attend the national meeting from your own home or office. The annual meeting includes research seminars as well as student presentations. Having attended in the past, I can attest that it is a really great conference. The conference will take place November 5-8, 2020. I hope to see you there!!

    Here is the official description: 

    This conference will showcase emerging trends and challenges across a broad spectrum of science–art collaborations and explore how interdisciplinarity can advance scientific discoveries.

    Sessions will cover topics such as behavioral sciences, art therapy, neuroscience of aesthetic experience, data visualization, communicating science through arts, brain’s response to music, and innovative strategies for integrating arts in STEM education and research.

    The event virtually brings together cross-disciplinary thought leaders, artists, communicators, and innovators working at the intersections of arts, sciences, medicine, technology, engineering, mathematics, and education to provide complementary perspectives on how the convergence of arts and sciences affect new knowledge. 

    Stay Healthy!
