Title: The Future of Science and Society Starts with You

Kei Koizumi氏
Visiting Scholar in science policy, AAAS


We know science makes the future happen, but science today and tomorrow requires more than experiments and publishing the results. We all face the challenge of connecting science to the challenges we face as a global society. I'd like to talk today about how I've worked with Science and AAAS to connect science to society and offer some ideas to my Japanese colleagues from my own experience. I'll talk about how I've worked at AAAS to connect scientists to policymakers and science to policy, how I've worked at several institutions to connect scientific advice to informing important decisions, how effective science communication increases the impact of research, and how we can all work together to make science a welcoming environment for everyone. We have so many difficult challenges such as a warming planet, aging societies, and environmental pollution that everyone has to participate in making science part of the solution. Whether we are early-career scientists or policy makers, Japanese or American, researchers or communicators, we can work together to improve science and society.


Title: Being a Scientist in a Dynamic World: Challenges and Strategies

Mary Voytek氏
Executive Director, Earth-Life Science Institute and Executive Director, ELSI and Advisor to the President at Tokyo Institute of Technology

What does it take to be a successful scientist in the modern world?
What is the current landscape of funding?
How do scientist engage in interdisciplinary research or research in emerging fields when much of your training is in conventional scientific disciplines?
How can early career scientists and engineers work with the best in the field and gain the global connections that have become an essential aspect of science?
What is the diversity of career tracks for PhD students and postdocs after they complete their training and how can you prepare for them?
These and other questions will be discussed.

Title: Movement in plants

As a sessile organism, plants need to adapt rapidly to unstable environmental conditions. Unlike animals and birds, plants cannot move away from danger. According to the lifestyle of plants they must have exquisite sensory systems and efficient communication systems, and consequently respond to environmental stimuli by changing how they grow. For example, when a seed germinates in the dark, the embryonic stem grows rapidly to push the first leaves out of the soil and toward the light to support photosynthesis. The growth movement of a plant depends to a great extent on the shape of cells. How the movement in plant is controlled will be introduced with our latest finding.
