Networking Sessions Overview

Our AIB 2021 Online Networking sessions are an opportunity to socialize and strategize with other like-minded scholars.

Whether you’re attending an AIB Annual Meeting for the first time, looking for potential collaborators in your geographic region, or seeking to discuss ideas with scholars who share your research interests, we have a networking session to suit your needs. A full schedule is available below.

Special thanks to our 2021 Program Committee, Regional Chapters, and Shared Interest Groups (SIGs) for facilitating these events!
