Each year, the SWARM Division of AAAS holds annual meetings for interested persons, its affiliated societies in the SWARM geographic region as well as its 14,000 members. These meetings are composed of contributed paper sessions and symposia, field trips, public lectures, social events, and student presentations. Traditionally, the meeting is held in March or April. These meetings present a rare opportunity for scientists and students from a wide variety of disciplines to interact and hear presentations on topics they may not traditionally have access to.

Author and essayist Carl Zimmer, blogs on “The Loom,” will give the Powell Memorial Lecture on the evening of 29 March.
