About the Meeting
Science and Technology from a Global Perspective emphasizes the power of science and technology as well as education to assist less-developed segments of the world society, to improve partnerships among already-developed countries, and to spur knowledge-driven transformations across a host of fields.
With more than 150 symposia as well as plenary and topical lectures and a variety of special events to choose from, Boston is the place to be from 14-18 February for anyone with a passion for science or a desire to meet the world's leading experts. View the full program.
Referred to as the "Athens of America," the greater Boston area is home to more than 100 colleges and universities and some of the world's finest research and teaching hospitals. This has had a major impact on the business environment, attracting high-tech industries to the region, including biotechnology and computer hardware and software companies.
Events will be held in the Hynes Convention Center, the Sheraton Boston, and the Boston Marriott Copley Place, conveniently located in the heart of Boston's historic Back Bay. They can be reached via indoor walkways that connect to the Shops at Prudential Center and Copley Place, together offering more than 200 shops, restaurants, and more. The Hilton Boston Back Bay, directly across from the Sheraton, will also host meeting events.
