Share your suggestions for the Bio-Link Summer Fellows Forum

Dear Bio-Link community,

We're going to be doing a couple of experiments at the Bio-Link Summer Fellows Forum this year.

1.  Poster / Sharing / Meet & Greet Session

The goal for this session is to give everyone a structured chance to talk with other participants.
In the first hour, one group of participants will stand by a poster or by a table (with other kinds of information for sharing, such as brochures, hand-outs, etc.) .The other group will walk around, talk with people, and learn about their projects.  

The information a person puts on his/her table or poster can be as formal or as informal as that person wants. For example, some people might put up a poster on their table, while others might simply lay out their program brochures.  In the second hour, the two groups switch. 

We're asking everyone to provide a sentence about the project/program/topic they wish to discuss ahead of time (e.g. their associate degree program, their internship program, problems recruiting students). That way participants can make plans to visit the tables of the people they most want to meet and chat with.

Posters: it may be best to make your posters out of cardboard so they can stand up on their own.  We're not going to be able to have push pins or a way to attach posters to a wall.
2.  Summer session ideas
We have a few open time slots this year and we're going to experiment with a new method for identifying interesting topics and proposing sessions.  
We would like you to propose sessions and /or  topics in the comment section below.  Log in to the site to have your name show up with your comment.

Feel free to comment on which topics are your favorites.

If you want, you can recommend people to lead the sessions or volunteer to lead them yourself.
Keep in mind, a session proposal is just that.  We cannot guarantee that all topics will be used.
