2010 Highlights


AAAS Annual Meeting


The theme of the 2011 AAAS Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C., is "Science Without Borders." According to AAAS President Alice Huang, the program will "highlight science and teaching that cross conventional borders or break out from silos, especially in ground-breaking areas of research that highlight new and exciting developments in support of science, technology, and education."

The multidisciplinary AAAS Annual Meeting will feature more than 160 scientific symposia; plenary and topical lectures; a poster competition; career fair; career workshops; and an exhibit hall. Details about the scientific program and speakers will be available at the AAAS Annual Meeting Web site:

Huang, a senior faculty associate in biology at the California Institute of Technology and distinguished virologist, will open the meeting with the President's Address at 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, 17 February 2011.
