Welcome to Chicago
The University of Chicago, Argonne National Laboratory and Fermi National Acceleratory Laboratory are pleased to participate in this year’s meeting of The American Association for the Advancement of Science held in Chicago, February 12-16.
The University manages Argonne and co-manages Fermilab for the U.S. Department of Energy. Together, we attract over $1.3 billion dollars in annual research funding.
Many senior administrators, scientists and scholars from the University, Argonne and Fermilab are included in this year’s program and will speak on topics ranging from the global energy challenge and genome science to bioinformatics and high energy physics. This website provides details on these sessions to assist with itinerary planning as well as other useful links, news and information.
Through interdisciplinary research that transcends traditional boundaries and institutions, the University of Chicago, Argonne, and Fermilab have improved the lives of millions of people and opened up new economic and educational opportunities throughout the region. Our leadership in the fields of accelerator science, biomedicine, computing, energy and nanotechnology, to name a few, has contributed to the nation’s competitiveness and to the region’s undisputed reputation as the Third Coast.
We look forward to presenting and exchanging ideas in hopes of furthering scientific innovation and discovery for present and future generations.
See you there!
