2023 Interdisciplinary Research Fall Forum

2023 Interdisciplinary Research Fall Forum

TDAI and the Sustainability Institute invite you to explore the space where disciplines and ideas intersect and transform.


Call for Session Proposals: Due May 15

The Translational Data Analytics Institute and the Sustainability Institute are seeking session proposals for the 2023 Interdisciplinary Research Fall Forum, to be held November 8-9 in Pomerene Hall. Session proposals are due Monday, May 15. 

Topics: The theme of this year’s forum is Computational Approaches for a Just & Sustainable World, with sessions focused on three subtopics: 1) Computational Approaches; 2) Resilience and Sustainability; and, 3) Equity and Justice. We welcome proposals from a wide range of interdisciplinary perspectives, with preference for proposals that integrate computational approaches with the other subtopics.

Session formats: Sessions can take the format of a 90-minute workshop, or a 60-minute panel discussion that is followed by 20 minutes for Q&A and discussion.

Budget: Speakers and presenters from Ohio State will receive a letter of acknowledge for their service. Non-OSU speakers will receive honoraria of $250 (for speakers from central Ohio or participating via Zoom), $500 (for speakers from Ohio who are not local), or $1,250 (for speakers traveling from outside Ohio). The maximum budget per session is $1,500.
