Among the activities at the The New York Academy of Sciences are symposia that draw scientists from the New York metropolitan area to hear both local and nonlocal speakers. These symposia are captured in "eBriefings," which include a semi-technical description of the event for less specialized audiences, which are what I have written. In addition, the audio and slides for the event are usually posted online.


NOTE: NYAS redesigns their site from time to time, leaving some of the earlier links here broken. Also, some of them are only viewable in full by NYAS members.
