About this year's conference theme...

Welcome back to #OSTI2024! We are glad you're here and look forward to seeing you at this virtual conference!

I've been naming OSTI conferences since "Bridges Across Borders" in 2019, but choosing this year's theme was a challenge. At a time when it can sometimes seem like the world is too much with us, the #OSTI2024 theme of dreams and hope grew out of two quotes, both from my distinguished writers, that have brought me peace this year.

As Amy Tan says: “We dream to give ourselves hope. To stop dreaming - well, that’s like saying you can never change your fate,” while according to Maxine Hong Kingston: “In a time of destruction, create something.”

I hope we can dream a little and create space to create something memorable at OSTI's 11th Annual conference this September 20th and 21st! Bring your hopes and dreams to #OSTI2024.

- Allison deFreese, 2024 OSTI Conference Chair
