Over the weekend of October 12-14th, 2012, Chris Gerbi participated in the Chinese-American National Academy of Sciences Kavli Frontiers of Science Symposium, held in Irvine, California. He was also invited to be on the organizing committee for the next symposium, in 2014, to be held in China.

Brenda Hall attended a similar Symposium in 2006.

Additional information about the program (http://www.nasonline.org/programs/kavli-frontiers-of-science/):

The Academy’s Kavli Frontiers of Science symposia bring together outstanding young scientists to discuss exciting advances and opportunities in a broad range of disciplines. The format encourages both one-on-one conversations and informal group discussions in which young participants continue to communicate about insights gained from formal presentations and the excitement of learning about cutting-edge research in other fields. By doing so, Frontiers helps to remove communication barriers between fields and encourages collaborations among some of the world’s best and brightest young scientists. Annual Kavli Frontiers symposia are held for young scientists in the U.S. and bilateral symposia have included young researchers in the U.K., Germany, France, Japan, China, Indonesia, and India.
