#3: Special Events for Networking and Meeting
Consistent with what you might expect from the epicenter of the scientific world, the AAAS Annual Meeting features many special events for meeting with colleagues and making new contacts. Despite the size and prominence of the event, we have worked hard to ensure that you have the opportunity to meet peers in casual environments.
#4: Opportunities To Engage Young Minds and Explore Academé
To improve the future for all and protect our planet, young minds must be drawn into science and technology and be equipped with 21st century skills. The meeting offers many opportunities to open up the world of science to students so they can experience the day-to-day worlds of possibility, discovery, and application.
#5: Special Registration Offers
We know as a practical matter that, no matter how attractive the AAAS Meeting program is, time and money can be an issue. This is why we offer special online registration discounts for members, one-day attendees, and a special New Member rate allowing non-members to attend and become a new member.

The session will be held on Saturday, 18 February, 1:00 p.m.—5:00 p.m., West Exhibit Hall A, Vancouver Convention Centre. Submit your poster abstract online.
