At an in-person meeting, you might grab a cup of coffee with a colleague to discuss the talk you just heard. You might sit next to someone you didn’t know during a keynote and end up chatting about the exciting presentation. You might go to a meetup focused on a topic relevant to you or your work and meet new folks who could become collaborators.
How can we try to capture some of this magic virtually?
The TAGC Online Slack workspace is the place to go and chat with other attendees about what you’re learning from the meeting.
The TAGC Online Slack has channels for each community participating in TAGC, each of the 12 research themes, and each of the coffee break meetup topics. Join the channels relevant to your work to catch up with other attendees with similar interests throughout the meeting. Chat with exhibitors and get application tips or learn about their latest products.
Community channels begin with “c_”, theme channels begin with “t_”, and meetup channels begin with “m_”. Channels with information for all attendees begin with “a_”. Exhibitor channels begin with “e_”.
Users will automatically be added to the channels meant for all attendees (all “a_” channels) but will need to add themselves to additional channels they’re interested in. There are instructions below for finding and joining channels.
