For Scientists

During ATS 2013 visit the Science and Innovation Center, a forum for scientists and researchers to network with each other, learn about research related resources, and have informal consultations with other scientists to discuss questions about study design, technology implementation, experimental trouble shooting, or data interpretation.

The Science and Innovation Center is organized by representatives of the RCMB, RSF and AII Assemblies.
