Scioly roundtables are a currently defunct form of interaction between experienced alumni of the Scioly.org and the currently-competing Scioly.org community through IRC, a means of helping current competitors with their team organizations and events. Historically, roundtables date back to as early as 2014. Older roundtables were more open-ended while more recent events each had a focus. As of January 2021, the program is on hold.
