The first step in the Call for Symposia process is to share your idea with your colleagues and look for collaborators. We recommend you post your idea on the ISHLTconnect
forum for your Professional Community (PC) to see if other members are interested in the topic—and to share it in a different Professional Community from yours to look for multidisciplinary collaboration.
We also encourage you to send your idea to the Steering Committee
of the Interdisciplinary Network(s) (IDNs) most related to the topic (AHFTX, ALFTX, MCS, or PVD) to seek input on the idea or help identify other collaborators.
IDNs and PCs are encouraged to collaborate to generate content ideas for symposium proposals. This can be done via ISHLTconnect, email, or through Zoom meetings. ISHLT staff is available to assist in setting up Zoom meetings—send an email to Juliet Osazemwinde
, Governance and Communities Administrator, at firstname.lastname@example.org
