AAAS Annual Meeting

Dates: February 16 – 20, 2012
Location: Vancouver, Canada

The Annual Meeting is one of the most widely recognized global science events, with hundreds of networking opportunities and broad global media coverage. An exceptional array of speakers will gather at the 2012 AAAS Annual Meeting from 16-20 February in Vancouver, B.C.

The theme of “Flattening the World: Building a Global Knowledge Society” is intended to focus the program on the complex, interconnected challenges of the 21st century and on pathways to global solutions through international, multidisciplinary efforts.

Once annually, AAAS sponsors an international conference — four days of symposia, lectures, seminars, workshops, and poster sessions that cover every area of science, technology, and education. Typically attendees hail from nearly 60 countries, and everyone is welcome. Those who join us will have the opportunity to choose from among a broad range of activities, including plenary and topical lectures by some of the world’s leading scientists and engineers, career development workshops, and an international exhibition.
