About the AAAS Annual Meeting

The AAAS Annual Meeting is interdisciplinary and inclusive. Each year, our community gathers together to discuss recent developments in science and technology. Below you’ll find stories from many of our attendees.

Serving Society Through Science Policy

We collaborated with AAAS Science and Technology Policy Fellow Katherine Himes to animate a short video about the theme of the 2017 Annual Meeting: Serving Society Through Science Policy.

Stories by You, Visuals by Us

We asked members of the Annual Meeting community to tell us a story about attending the meeting. Then we put our own visuals in! We’ll have more stories soon.
