Welcome to Vancouver
With its blend of incredible mountains, sparkling ocean, and a multicultural flair, Vancouver is the largest city in the province of British Columbia with one of the mildest climates in Canada. Home to spectacular natural scenery and a bustling metropolitan core, Vancouver was Host City to the Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games in 2010. Outside the Meeting, there is always something to do in Vancouver, whether just relaxing in a park or bike riding around the seawall.
Join AAAS President Nina V. Fedoroff in Vancouver Canada, at one of the most widely recognized pan-science events, with hundreds of networking opportunities and broad global media coverage. The theme is intended to focus the program on the complex, interconnected challenges of the 21st century and on pathways to global solutions through international, multidisciplinary efforts.
