AAAS to Sponsor Two Conferences to Address Issues of Prime Importance to Scientists
In keeping with its mission to inform scientists, policymakers, and the public of the latest developments in science and science policy, AAAS will host two major conferences in Washington D.C. this May. "The 26th Annual AAAS Colloquium on Science and Technology Policy" and "Legal Issues and Strategies for Responding to Allegations of Research Misconduct" are open to the public and will serve as forums for discussing various issues affecting the scientific community.
The 26th Annual AAAS Colloquium on Science and Technology Policy, entitled "Science and Technology in the New Administration," will take place 3-4 May at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington D.C. The meeting is designed to provide federal and industrial policy makers and members of the scientific, engineering, and academic communities with an opportunity to take part in an open discussion of issues relating to science and technology policy. The Colloquium occurs after the release of the President's budget but before final congressional action, thus allowing for a timely exchange of information about the budget and the consequences of various policy options.

The conference on "Legal Issues and Strategies for Responding to Allegations of Research Misconduct" will take place 30-31 May, 2001 at the Sheraton Four Points in Washington D.C. The conference will bring together federal and institutional officials and private attorneys to comment on the changes in regulatory policy and on recent litigation regarding research misconduct. Topics to be covered include investigation of research misconduct, litigation issues and the appeals process, and how legal issues affect the way governments and institutions respond to allegations of research misconduct.
