Submit a Poster Session Proposal -- deadline extended

The AAAS Center for Science Diplomacy will host the third annual science diplomacy conference, “Science Diplomacy 2017,” on March 29, 2017, at the AAAS Headquarters in Washington, D.C. The one-day conference will bring scientists, policymakers, educators, and students together around emerging and timely issues of science diplomacy. The poster session will provide the opportunity for a limited number of participants to present their ideas and fresh thinking on science diplomacy and will serve as a venue for extended informal discussion with other meeting attendees.

Science diplomacy topics for posters include, but are not limited to:

  • The role of institutions, networks, and mechanisms in science diplomacy
  • National approaches to science diplomacy
  • International research and large-scale infrastructures
  • Scientific cooperation during political strain
  • Cross-cutting areas of transboundary issues and governance of the global commons, such as the Sustainable Development Goals and the post-2030 agenda
  • Diplomacy needs and impact of scientific disciplines
  • Science and technology in international development
  • Regional integration and trade
  • Higher education and research mobility
  • Capacity building, training, and educating in science diplomacy

Partial support for travel may be available for students and postdocs.
