As a relatively new field of scientific study, meeting science continues to generate many questions. For example, what is meeting science? Who are meeting scientists? What distinguishes meeting science from other related fields of inquiry? The purpose of this chapter is to address these commonly asked questions. In this chapter we review what meeting science is, discuss the nascent nature of the field, describe who meeting scientists are and what they do, and disentangle the relationship between meeting science and team science. To close, we outline directions for future research on meetings.
