AAAS is pleased to announce its 2011 Leadership Seminar in Science and Technology Policy, scheduled for November 14-18. The Seminar, a condensed version of the widely-hailed orientation program for AAAS S&T Policy Fellows, will include sessions on how policy is made in areas ranging from genetics to energy policy, on federal budgeting for R&D, on how scientists can be effective in interacting with Congress, on science and regulation, and many other topics. Speakers include leading personalities in science and technology policy. The Seminar is designed for anyone who needs or wants to know how S&T policy is made -- scientists and engineers, managers and administrators in all sectors, association officials, government agency program managers, embassy science diplomats, and others.
To be held at AAAS headquarters in downtown Washington, DC, the Seminar will run from noon on Monday, November 14, to noon on Friday, the 18th. Applicants will be admitted on a rolling, space-available basis, and will be notified by e-mail within three weeks of receipt of the application. The selection committee selects a diverse class to
optimize the learning experience and the exchange of ideas. The deadline for applications is September 15. Please apply early. Since
participation is limited to approximately 30-35 people, spaces will fill up quickly.
