Welcome to Chicago

13-17 February│Chicago
2014 AAAS Annual Meeting

The University of Chicago, Argonne National Laboratory, Fermi National Acceleratory Laboratory and the Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL) are pleased to participate in this year’s meeting of The American Association for the Advancement of Science held in Chicago, February 13-17 at the Hyatt Regency Chicago, 151 East Wacker Drive.

One of the world’s premier research universities, the University of Chicago helps lead the country in scientific and technological innovation in part through its management of two U.S. Department of Energy laboratories, Argonne and Fermilab, and the world-renowned Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL). Partnerships among the three labs and UChicago facilitate collaborative research among UChicago faculty and students and lab scientists and engineers—with some faculty holding joint appointments within the labs. These broadened research initiatives are strengthened by combining University and lab intellectual and physical resources, paving the way for greater impact in Illinois, the United States, and across the globe.

Many scientists and scholars from all four institutions will speak at the annual meeting on topics ranging from climate change, childhood education, and energy storage to the latest investigations in urban research and dark matter. This website provides details on these sessions to assist with itinerary planning as well as other useful links, news and information.

Their groundbreaking work has contributed to the burgeoning national recognition of Chicago as a world-class region for innovation and discovery.

We look forward to meeting and exchanging ideas with you at the AAAS 2014 Annual Meeting.
