American Academy of Arts & Sciences
The American Academy of Arts and Sciences is an honorary society that recognizes and celebrates the excellence of its members and an independent research center convening leaders from across disciplines, professions, and perspectives to address significant challenges.www.amacad.org/program/science-engineering-and-technology
Academy projects in Science, Engineering, and Technology (SET) seek to strengthen the capacity of science and engineering to improve the human condition. Global challenges increasingly require collaboration across disciplinary, professional, and national boundaries, while rapid advances in information processing and transmission raise new issues for both the management of scientific and technical information and for the ability of individuals and institutions to assimilate and act on new discoveries.
New publications from the American Academy of Arts & Sciences SET team will be available for download on the following topics:
Select publications from previous SET projects are also available for download at the Academy's virtual booth. To browse all Academy publications and projects, as well as to see our roster of upcoming events, please visit our website.
In addition to its program work, the American Academy is known publishing for its quarterly journal, Dædalus. Representing the intellectual community in its breadth and diversity, Dædalus explores the frontiers of knowledge and issues of public importance. The Academy is pleased to announce that all Daedalus articles published since 2003 are now Open Access and available to read and download online. Dædalus essays and issues – with links to related Academy projects – are available through the American Academy’s website; issues published from 2003 to the present are also accessible through The MIT Press.
A member of the Academy's Science, Engineering, & Technology team will be available over the course of the conference to answer additional questions about the work of the SET Program Area and the Academy in general.
