TWAS to meet in dynamic Buenos Aires next week
Date:9/27/2013

Top scientists and policymakers from the developing world including science ministers from at least two nations will convene in Buenos Aires, Argentina, on Monday 30 September for a meeting that will explore new research and compelling challenges in science and engineering.

The meeting will be held at the Sheraton Buenos Aires Hotel & Convention Center for business meetings on Monday, and for four days of science meetings from 1-4 October. Attendance is by invitation only, but sessions will be open to the press. The official language of the meeting is English.

In all, more than 300 researchers, top science policy officials and educators are expected to attend the yearly General Meeting of The World Academy of Sciences for the advancement of science in developing countries (TWAS). They will engage in discussions and hear presentations on a range of critically important issues, including innovation in Latin America, cancer research in Africa, membrane-based technology for environmental protection, biotechnology for agriculture, and the social science of poverty.

On Tuesday 1 October, government ministers and their representatives from some of the developing world's science leaders will meet to discuss the development challenges their nations have faced. The session is expected to include speeches by Lino Baraao, Argentina's minister of Science, Technology and productive innovation; Derek Hanekom, minister of South Africa's Department of Science and Technology; Thirumalachari Ramasami, secretary of India's Department of Science and Technology; and TWAS President Bai Chunli, who also serves as president of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. The session also will include top officials of Brazil, Italy, Mexico and UNESCO.

In addition, TWAS will announce winners of its major prizes, including the first-ever TWAS-Lenovo Science Prize, which includes a USD100,000 award. The Lenovo Prize, to be given for achievements in physics and
