SFU hits hot buttons at 2012 AAAS conference
Date:1/24/2012

An international gathering of world media, researchers, academics including several from Simon Fraser University and members of the public is coming to the Vancouver Convention Centre Feb. 16-20.

Simon Fraser University's President Andrew Petter was on hand at the first sounding of a bell announcing the 2012 AAAS (American Association for the Advancement of Science) conference, at the Vancouver Aquarium yesterday.

"The AAAS conference is a must for scientists, academics and science journalists from around the world, and provides an opportunity to showcase outstanding science taking place across Canada," says Petter, a conference co-chair.

The AAAS is an international non-profit organization founded in Washington D.C. in 1848 and dedicated to advancing pure and social science worldwide through annual conferences and its journal Science.

For only the second time since 1981, the AAAS is holding its annual conference in Canada. The international research fair was last held outside of the United States in Toronto in 1981.

Nine well known SFU researchers will be among more than 700 speakers at this conference, which is bringing scientists, policymakers, media and the public together to collaborate and communicate on high profile issues.

So cutting edge is the research that they're presenting on a wide range of complex, interconnected challenges confronting our 21st century world that much of it is being presented for the first time. In some cases, researchers known for their expertise on particular topics will be speaking on others for the first
