Before the retreat, all IAB members could sign up to as many of the groups as they were interested in, and these subgroups then organized one or more meetings to cover a set of different aspects for these relatively high-level topics. Other than in a physical meeting where break-outs usually happen in parallel, this time there was a chance to join more groups, however, of course, the more groups one joined, the more stressful was the week as those meetings were scattered over all time zones. I personally signed up for two sessions and can say that we had some really good discussions. I believe the same is true for others based on the reports we got in the all-IAB portion of the retreat. These sessions generated a bunch of new action items for the IAB, covering, e.g., new ideas for programs, workshops, or technical talks. Still, time was scarce and some discussions are still on-going, including a work item on how to reorganize IAB programs to be more effective and open, which already started last year. I am optimistic that we can hold up the positive energy that came out of these activities for a while, not having given up the hope entirely that we might be able to hold an in-person retreat later this year to catch up at least with the missed social part.
