Call for Applicants: AAAS Annual Meeting Free Librarian Registration

The American Association for the Advancement of Science Annual Meeting
will be held February 16-20, 2012, in Vancouver, B.C.

I encourage you to plan now to participate! For the third year in a
row, AAAS will fully fund the registration fee for 30 librarians.  To
request free registration please reply to alison.ricker@oberlin.edu.
Awards will be given on a "first come, first awarded" basis; if there
are more than 30 requests, preference will be given to first-time
attendees at an AAAS meeting.

The theme, “Flattening the World: Building the Global Knowledge
Society,” is directly related to our work as information
professionals, helping to address "complex, interconnected challenges
of the 21st century" in the development of "global solutions through
international, multidisciplinary efforts."

Please contact me if you are interested in developing a conference
session focused on strengthening collaboration among librarians,
scientists, science writers and administrators, with the goal of
increasing scientific literacy and basing policy decisions on unbiased
scientific knowledge.

Feel free to send this invitation to other science librarians.  I look
forward to hearing from you!

Computing, and Communication, 2011-2014
