BSI’s vision is to create an accessible conference where international scholars will be given an opportunity to present their research, broaden their knowledge and establish new collaborations.
Our real-time remote conference will enable discussions surrounding research and community activities, led by international scholars.
Participating institutes will host their respective conferences, starting at 7AM EST, to be broadcast live by BSI. To establish an accessible platform, BSI is willing to provide funds to support internet and webinar connections. Links for the live broadcast will be distributed to all registered participants prior to the conference.
