  • Objectives: We committed ourselves early in a series of weekly meetings to (a) making the event inclusive, notably by arranging captions or audio interpretation across languages, which would be new to the WCNA conferences; (b) a theme of global-and-local frames implemented in several ways; (c) supporting local events and being able to sponsor attendees who needed funding to make time or get equipment to attend.
