The Sage Assembly Experience

Attending an Assembly is a unique experience. From the structured part of the conference, you can expect rapid-fire project descriptions, ranging from open genomic data sharing to novel education methods to in-depth keynotes on how data drives tornado models and micro lending. But you can also expect to be turned out into the host city and asked to interact directly with other attendees, local citizens, nature, data, and your own personal aspirations.

There are opportunities for informal engagement through our receptions and break times, and you can expect to be called to the podium to speak. We provide attendees the opportunity to step forward and tell their stories through the context of each year’s Assembly theme. The agenda is curated around a careful narrative arc aimed to create both short-term and long-term change for participants.
