Call for Session Proposals by 30 Jan: IAP Triennial Conference and Worldwide Meeting of the Young Academies

We are pleased to announce the call for session proposals for the IAP Triennial Conference and Worldwide Meeting of the Young Academies!
The theme of the meeting will be, “Inclusive Excellence: Harnessing knowledge for sustainable societies”. The meeting is hosted by the U.S. National Academy of Sciences (NAS) and the Royal Society of Canada (RSC) and co-organized by IAP, the Global Young Academy (GYA), NAS, RSC, the RSC College, and the NAS New Voices Program.
It will take place from Tuesday – Thursday, November 1-3, 2022, online and at Biosphere2, Arizona, USA (hybrid format).
In addition to dedicated sessions focused on major IAP and GYA/young academy projects, there will be 4 to 5 sessions selected from proposals,
submitted from senior and young academies, that provide concrete examples of the power of inclusive excellence frameworks to help
address global challenges such as climate change, pandemic preparedness, and improving human health and education accessibility.

Session proposals that illustrate how inequities in our academic institutions may be addressed are also sought. Proposals should
address at least one aspect of inclusive excellence, such as diversity, inclusion, sense of belonging, equity, accessibility, community engagement, and open access to data/science/information.
Proposals that include several academies, including collaborative proposals from young and senior academics are encouraged. The format
of the session could be a panel with Q&A or an interactive moderated discussion.
All IAP member academies and young academies are eligible to submit proposals. Additional details are in the attached concept note.
