After a tumultuous year in which our organization faced enormous challenges together with the rest of our global community — not least of which being the pandemic and an incomplete reckoning with systemic racism and injustice — ComSciCon published today its annual report for 2020.
The report covers our transition, for the first time, to a virtual workshop format for our Flagship workshop and the design our graduate student-led Organizing Committees developed for that event. We also feature reports from several of our chapters,many of whom also made the transition to virtual events this year. You can read in the report about the innovative ways our Organizers found to generate community and connection between our attendees despite the unprecedented circumstnces, and the joy we have taken in the positive experiences and productive outcomes our student attendees enjoyed at these events.
We thank Rodrigo Garcia and our 2020 Organizing Committee, led by Program Chair Sheryl Hosler, for their work to compile the report.
