AAAS 2015: Call for Symposium Proposals

February 12-16, 2015, San Jose, CA, United States

Innovations, Information, and Imaging

Science and technology are being transformed by new ways to collect and use information. Progress in all fields is increasingly driven by the ability to organize, visualize, and analyze data. Advances in information and imaging technologies are generating novel applications in fields such as biochemistry, computer science, particle physics, genomics, and oceanography, and creating ways to interpret data across disciplines. This transformation makes scientific information more open, available, and accessible globally. The escalating amount of data, and advances in data analysis, are changing the ways we discover answers to scientific and societal problems. Thoughtful consideration of how information is used for societal benefit, evaluated for potential risks, and communicated beyond the scientific community will allow this revolution to reach its full potential.

Proposals for symposia and career development workshops are now being solicited for the 2015 AAAS Annual Meeting to be held 12-16 February in San Jose, CA.
