More about World Science Week:

More than 2,000 of the world’s top scientists and researchers will be in Auckland, New Zealand, for an interrelated series of international science summits from 25 August through to 3 September 2014. These meetings are taking place in New Zealand for the first time.

The international science meetings include:

The 31st triennial General Assembly of the International Council for Science (ICSU). Established in 1931 and based in Paris, ICSU represents more than 121 national science academies and 31 scientific unions.

The 6th biennial Open Science Conference of the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR), an interdisciplinary committee of the International Council for Science. With more than 1500 attendees, it is by far the largest international gathering of Antarctic scientists.

World Science Week New Zealand is a series of free public lecture events featuring many of these scientists, which runs concurrently with the international meetings. Some of the world’s foremost experts will share their views and insights on the critical science debates of today.

World Science Week New Zealand is supported by the Royal Society of New Zealand and the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment.

The public has a rare opportunity to hear directly from some of the world’s pre-eminent scientists during a series of public presentations in Auckland for World Science Week New Zealand.
