The SBP13 Cross-fertilization Roundtable will be held in the afternoon of the first full day of the technical portion of the conference. The purpose of the cross-fertilization roundtables is to help participants become better acquainted with people outside of their discipline and with whom they might consider partnering on a future SBP project.
To accomplish this goal, this roundtable workshop will feature 3-4 sessions, each lasting up to 30 minutes. During each session, several roundtables will run concurrently. Each roundtable will focus on a different topic (although should demand warrant, there may be duplication of some topics across roundtables). Approximately 8-10 participants will sit at each table. Workshop organizers will assign participants to roundtables based on their interests. Each roundtable session will offer an opportunity for behavioral and social scientist and systems scientists to meet and interact. Thus, by the end of the workshop period, each participant will have had an opportunity to converse with a variety people from complementary disciplines and may meet new colleagues with whom they might like to pursue future collaborations. This workshop is intended to facilitate the formation of numerous interdisciplinary investigative teams that may collaborate on new grant applications to sponsoring funding agencies.
