Science Diplomacy 2018
The AAAS Center for Science Diplomacy will host the fourth annual science diplomacy conference, “Science Diplomacy 2018,” on September 14, 2018, at the AAAS Headquarters in Washington, D.C. This year’s conference will be particularly special as we celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the Center. The one-day event will bring scientists and engineers, policymakers and diplomats, and educators and students together around emerging and timely issues of science diplomacy in plenary and parallel panel sessions.
We are inviting proposals of panel sessions. Submissions are due by May 4, 2018
The sessions should be a 90-minute interactive panel comprising up to four individuals (including moderator) providing short presentations that catalyze robust discussions among the panelists and audience. Session organizers may serve as moderators of their sessions but not necessarily. All proposals will be reviewed by a Selection Committee convened by the Center. Please note that session organizers and panelists receive complementary conference registration; however, travel and accommodation costs will not be reimbursed.
Further information about submitting a session proposal may be found here.
Additionally, we are currently accepting poster session proposals. The poster session intends to provide an opportunity to a select number of participants to present their ideas on science diplomacy and will serve as a venue for extended informal discussion with other meeting attendees.
