Meet-the-Editor panels are important aspects of both in-person and virtual Keystone Symposia meetings, designed to foster connections between editors and scientists. These mutually beneficial relationships help to facilitate the publication process for researchers, while providing editors insight into exciting new discoveries and research directions to showcase in upcoming journal issues. We encourage you to take advantage of this special session, and to reach out to these editors during the meeting, to get the inside scoop on fast-tracking your work for publication.
Join us for this 30-minute ePanel discussion followed by a 30-minute live Q/A, and ask these editors your burning questions!

As part of our commitment to support and train the next generation of scientific leaders from all backgrounds, Keystone Symposia hosts Career Roundtables at selected in-person and virtual conferences. These workshops create a forum for field leaders to provide their unique perspectives on career development, professional pitfalls and the breadth of scientific opportunities available to support trainee scientists. Established researchers are chosen from a broad range of backgrounds (i.e., diverse demographics, career stages and career paths) to reflect a myriad of career paths and experiences. A panel discussion is followed by break out group sessions to enable trainees to interact with each senior scientist in a comfortable small group setting, to address specific questions, allow for mentorship and networking.
