A series of high-level discussions among global leaders, experts and innovators, focusing on major topics—including implications of robots for global society, emergency management strategies, and social impact-based sciences.
Halcyon is proud to partner with American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) for the 2016-2017 Halcyon Dialogue. AAAS seeks to advance science, engineering, and innovation throughout the world for the benefit of all people. To fulfill this mission, the AAAS Board has set the following broad goals: enhance communication among scientists, engineers, and the public; promote and defend the integrity of science and its use; strengthen support for the science and technology enterprise; provide a voice for science on societal issues; promote the responsible use of science in public policy; strengthen and diversify the science and technology workforce; foster education in science and technology for everyone; increase public engagement with science and technology; and advance international cooperation in science. AAAS, the publisher of Science and its sister journals, will be launching a new title, Science Robotics, in 2016. This journal will provide a broadly visible platform for airing and debating pressing policy and ethical issues raised by the rapid expansion of the field, as well as for key advances in research and development of robotics for all environments.
Organizations and individuals who invest in the Halcyon Dialogue will benefit from prominent recognition at and participation in public events; acknowledgement in related publications; and inclusion on a special Halcyon Dialogue sponsor page in AAAS’s Science magazine, the most read peer-reviewed general science journal in the world. They will also have opportunities to participate in closed dialogue sessions, be recognized in AAAS’s new journal, Science Robotics, and exhibit new robotics at the 2017 showcase at Halcyon House.
We are proud to be sponsored by prominent innovators in robotics and we would welcome the chance to discuss this unique opportunity with you. Please view details about sponsorship opportunities and contact Lena Galperina at email@example.com or 202-298-6007 for more information or to get involved. All contributions to Halcyon Dialogue directly support the program.
