President’s Invitation

From Steven Chu, 2019 President of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS).


Dear Colleagues:

Scientific and technological research have been invaluable in developing ways of improving life on Earth. The 2020 AAAS Annual Meeting theme, Envisioning Tomorrow’s Earth, considers how efforts and advances in science and technology can respond to the new challenges faced by society.

On behalf of the AAAS Board of Directors, I urge you to join us in Seattle from February 13-16, 2020, where this theme will be considered from interdisciplinary scientific perspectives. The AAAS Annual Meeting is the premier event at which you can network with future collaborators from different disciplines. We look forward to seeing you in Seattle.
