Zavattieri invited to attend Indonesian-American Kavli Frontiers of Science Symposium
Pablo Zavattieri, Associate Professor of Civil Engineering, has been invited to participate in the fifth Indonesian-American Kavli Frontiers of Science symposium July 28-31, 2015 in Makassar, Indonesia. The symposium is sponsored by the Indonesian Academy of Sciences, the U.S. National Academy of Sciences and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID).
This symposium series is the premiere activity within the U.S. Academy for distinguished young scientists. Unlike meetings that cover a single, narrow slice of science, these symposia are designed to provide an overview of advances and opportunities in a wide-ranging set of disciplines and to provide an opportunity for the future leaders of science to build a network with their colleagues. Attendees are selected by a committee of Academy members from among young researchers who have already made recognized contributions to science, including recipients of major fellowships and awards. Since its inception in 1989, more than one hundred of its "alumni" have been elected to the U.S. National Academy of Sciences, and ten have received Nobel Prizes. Many participants cite the Kavli Frontiers of Science symposium as one of the most significant experiences of their scientific careers.
The main topics to be discussed include Nanomaterials from Nature, Astrophysics/Exo-planets, Human Creativity/Cave Painting, Infectious Disease: Biocontrol, Marine Microbiology, and Health informatics Biobank.
