After two years of being virtual, the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) is thrilled to announce the 2023 AAAS Annual Meeting will be held in person March 2-5, 2023 in Washington D.C. AAAS is the world’s largest multidisciplinary scientific society dedicated to the advancement of science for societal good and each year they hold a Annual Meeting featuring lectures, flash talk sessions, e-poster presentations and international exhibit hall to bring together experts form a broad range of disciplines to discuss new research and developments in science, technology and policy.
The theme for next year is Science for Humanity and will aim to highlight groundbreaking multi-disciplinary research that advances knowledge and responds equitably to the needs of humanity. The Computing Community Consortium (CCC) has attended and hosted sessions since 2013. You can find out more about the CCC’s past contributions on our website.
They have just announced they are now accepting proposals for the following 2023 meeting sessions:
Scientific Session Panels Experts from different facets of the science and technology community assemble to compare notes during discussions about groundbreaking multi-disciplinary research that advances knowledge and responds to the needs of society. Accepted panelists will record a 10-15-minute spotlight video introducing key data and findings they will highlight in the panel conversation.
10-Minute Lightning Talks These live in-person short presentations offer individuals the opportunity to offer data and insights on any sci/tech topic relevant to those attending the AAAS meeting–discoveries, innovation, or policy.
Workshops These instructional or informational sessions will highlight opportunities or resources available to enhance or augment careers paths or advocacy efforts.
Proposals are due before June 16th, 2022.
