I have spent the past four days with colleagues Jennifer WIlby, Janet and Michael Singer at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Sciences. It has been a fairly intense time, not only attending sessions, but talking with many different people from around the world in varieties of disciplines. AAAS is the largest science organization in the world, and there are representatives from every corner of the globe. The four days have been a great opportunity to also spend time with ISSS colleagues and develop our respective views of the systems perspective and how to spread the word about the unique contributions ISSS can make.

I have been pleasantly surprised to see how international, and global, are the themes, exhibits, presentations and participants of this meeting.Also two of the three major sponsors are the European Union and the United Kingdom Research and Innovation https://www.ukri.org/news/major-presence-for-uk-at-worlds-largest-general-science-meeting/

Next years AAAS annual meeting is in Seattle and we could now think about how we might have more of a presence at the 2020 meeting.
