It's that time of year once again... The annual AAAS meeting is upon us. This is my favorite conference because I get to visit so many friends from different communities in media, policy, and science. In a few hours I'll be flying up to Washington, DC and I'm particularly excited for 2011 because it's been my first year serving on the Program Committee. There will be so many fantastic panels and discussions and I love the interdisciplinary nature of the meeting. For more information, visit the website. This year's theme is Science Without Borders, which:

integrates the practice of science, both in research and teaching, that uses multidisciplinary approaches to problem solving, crosses conventional borders, and takes into consideration the diversity of investigators and students. The program will feature sessions with strong scientific content across many science and engineering fields.

On Saturday at noon, I'll be introducing topical speaker Samantha Joye who will discuss "Offshore Ocean Aspects of the Gulf Oil Well Blowout." You can browse the program here. With that, I'm off to the airport... See you in Cap City!
