The Royal Society of Canada serves as the voice of Canadian scientists around the world and as such participates in the annual meeting now known as the “G Science” that precedes the G7/G8 meeting. I would like to provide a brief background on the origin of the G-science meetings.
The upcoming IAP Conference and General Assembly are organized by IAP in collaboration with the Academy of Science of South Africa (ASSAf) which is hosting the events in February/March 2016. The events are held in conjunction with ASSAf's 20th Anniversary.
The events are generously sponsored by the Department of Science and Technology (DST) and the National Research Foundation (NRF) of South Africa.
The Frontiers of Science meeting is a prestigious series of international meetings for outstanding early career scientists and researchers, which was initiated by the National Academy of Sciences (USA) in 1989 and which has since been adopted by a number of national academies and scientific organisations around the world.
