PoCC Express Cafés

These events will take place in the PoCC Lounge in the Online Conference Platform.

Is there a topic of interest to you that you don't see in conference workshop schedule? Are you longing to have more small-group conversations with like-minded colleagues or those with divergent perspectives who can challenge your thinking?
