Meetings: Program and Events
On behalf of the AAAS Board of Directors, it is my distinct honor to invite you to join us in San Francisco for the 2007 AAAS Annual Meeting, 15-19 February. As you know, this annual event has become the most important gathering of the year for the growing segment of the science and technology community interested in the interactions among disciplines and in the influence of science and technology on the human condition.
While the aim of advancing science and technology is, in itself, a strong motivator of the interdisciplinary thrust of the AAAS Annual Meeting, the character of the challenges to the human condition—energy, water, health, climate, security, development, and more—creates even more powerful incentives to exploit the interdisciplinary approaches that are the AAAS hallmark. Attendees will have the opportunity to choose among a broad range of activities, including nearly 180 symposia as well as plenary and topical lectures. You and your family can also enjoy Family Science Days - a free event open to the general public.
A town hall on "Communicating and Learning About Global Climate Change: An Event for Teachers, Students, and Other Communicators and Learners" is intended to expand the dialogue among scientists, teachers, students, policy-makers, business leaders, and the general public on the issue of global climate change. It will feature a broad and exciting array of presenters with a strong focus on strategies for addressing the problem.
This Web site presents the highlights of the 2007 Annual Meeting. I am also pleased to announce that for the first time, you can explore the program online and develop a personal itinerary at http://www.aaasmeeting.org/.
The Annual Meeting reflects tremendous efforts from the AAAS sections, divisions, and committees, which we gratefully acknowledge. I also extend a personal thanks to the Annual Meeting Scientific Program Committee and staff who reviewed and assembled the many excellent ideas and proposals into this outstanding meeting.
Please join us in San Francisco,
