American Association for the Advancement of Science - Pacific Division convenes in Boise June 24-27
Date:6/19/2012

The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) Pacific Division will convene in Boise from June 24-27 with presentations and field trips that span the fields of science and hold strong appeal for researchers, science students and the public.

Among the highlights will be a discussion featuring former NASA astronaut Barbara Morgan; explorations of criminal psychology in a dozen high-profile cases; and a look at how the warming climate is changing sagebrush-steppe ecosystems in Idaho and beyond.

The division's 93rd annual meeting will be held at the Boise Centre on the Grove, located in the heart of Idaho's historic capital city. The meeting will be held alongside of the 67th Northwest Regional Meeting of the American Chemical Society (ACS). Registrants for the AAAS meeting will also get access to the full ACS program, including symposia on cancer research, the nuclear fuel cycle, nanotechnology, and new insights on science education.

An estimated 700-800 registrants are expected for the two meetings. In addition, the program features a number of lectures and discussions that are open to the public, without charge.

The AAAS meeting features 16 symposia in all. Among them:

  • Long-Term Space Flight and Health: Morgan and other speakers will explore the effects of microgravity on physiological systems including cardiovascular, balance, musculoskeletal, and vision.

  • The Forensic Psychology of Women Death Penalty Cases: An examination of psychological issues related to 12 recent cases. Another symposium will look at the forensic psychology of lone-wolf terrorists.
  • Responses of Sagebrush-Steppe Ecosystems to a Changing Climate: Rapid climate change is expected to warm temperatures and change precipitation in arid and semi-arid lands of the American West. The dynamic could have
