The conference will be held in the Conference Facility of the National Science Foundation in Arlington, Va. at the Ballston Metro stop. With many Affiliates participating, the Conference will serve as an umbrella for scientific presentations, seminars, tutorials, and talks. These pan-Affiliate Conferences underline the fact that the Washington, D.C. area is not only the political capital of the country but, in many respects, the nation’s intellectual capital — with several major universities and government laboratories that are the homes of an astonishing number of Nobel laureates.

The WAS believes that showcasing the intellectual muscle of the area helps provide the support needed to continue to build and keep the United States at the forefront of scientific achievement
