Networking Dinners (no-host dinners)


Two years ago we piloted an idea of “No-Host Networking Dinners.” These are self-selecting networking dinner groups designed to promote greater interaction between meeting participants. We are working on arrangements and will have more details closer to the conference. (We will collect a list of restaurants that are within walking distance of the Westin Arlington Hotel, and will reach out to find volunteers to serve as hosts for a group of meeting participants. Note that again everyone will be expected to pay for their own meal at this event.)

Organizer:
Brian Ten Eyck, University of Arizona
