President’s Invitation

A letter from Susan Hockfield, 2017 President of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS).

Susan Hockfield

Dear Colleagues:

In these changing times, it is critical that academia, government, and industry continue to work together to move ideas into innovative advancements. This is why the theme of the 2018 AAAS Annual Meeting is Advancing Science: Discovery to Application.

On behalf of the AAAS Board of Directors, I urge you to join us in Austin, February 15-19, where this theme will be explored through interdisciplinary scientific sessions, renowned speakers, and one-on-one discussions. The AAAS Annual Meeting is the most widely reported global science gathering and the premier event at which you can network with future collaborators across disciplines.

We look forward to seeing you in Austin. Registration and housing are now available.

Susan Hockfield
AAAS President
President Emerita and Professor of Neuroscience
