How to Hybrid
The next session in the Academic Conference Organizer Seminar Series


Part of a series of mini seminars aimed at organizers of academic conferences. These seminars will cover various topics around organizing and running physical, virtual, and hybrid events.

When and Where:

Next Session: Tuesday, August 23rd, 11am EDT (GMT-4), in the Seminar Room of the Academic Metaverse by Virtual Chair.


Event Summary:

Meet with other organizers to learn how they're transitioning to hybrid events in a time where physical events are becoming practical again for some but not all. We'll start with a short panel discussion by organizers of recent hybrid events. These organizers will share their experiences—good and the bad—that they hope future hybrid event organizers can learn from. We'll then have group discussions about various topics in hybrid event design, where you can join the discussion most relevant to you. We'll wrap up with a larger group discussion and coffee break for networking with other organizers.
