Wang on American Institute of Physics panel on reimagining meetings
Lily Wang, associate dean for faculty and inclusion and professor of architectural engineering, was chosen to be part of a panel of experts assembled by the American Institute of Physics (AIP) to reimagine meetings of the future to be "more impactful for and valuable to society stakeholders."
Wang is an internationally renowned expert in acoustics, including the effects of noise and reverberation on human perception and performance. Wang is also a former president of the Acoustical Society of America (ASA).
The panel's report – "The Future of Association Convening: Envisioning for The Sciences (FACETS)," offers ideas and suggestions on how scientific conferences can integrate valuable lessons learned from retooling in-person meetings to virtual formats over the past year while also meeting changing demands of their research communities and the conduct of science.
The report looks at conferences and conference planning from design to execution and gives practical insight for navigating innovation while keeping an eye on business requirements and the needs of the scientific society.
