Winners of the TASSA Young Scholar Award will also present at the biennial TASSA Conference whose theme is centered on "Disruptive Ideas and Technologies." According to the TASSA website, "social, economic, and technological changes often require an idea or innovation that challenge the norm and create a completely new social structure, industry, or market; and eventually disrupt the establishment displaying time-honored firms, products, and alliances."
