Goal and structure

Developed with input from last year’s participants, the intent of this year’s symposium is to foster interdisciplinary collaboration on climate change research at OSU.

Discussion and planning are facilitated through the use of Breakout Groups in two sessions. Each session will start with short preview talks on each of the proposed discussion topics, followed by 1 hour of group discussions, run concurrently, with a designated leader and rapporteur. Each session will end with a plenary discussion of next steps.


Posters are currently available for previewing, comments, and questions at BOX.OSU.EDU.

Below is the schedule with Zoom links and poster information. Please have this document available the day of the Symposium to log in. Click here to download the schedule as a PDF.
