BLOOMINGTON, Ind.—Faculty experts from Indiana University will join thousands of scientists converging on Washington, D.C., from Feb. 11 to 15 at the 2016 Annual Meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
The IU scientists will travel to the nation’s capital to deliver presentations and accept honors in recognition of their roles as leaders in the fields of informatics, chemistry, biology, the philosophy of science and others.
On Feb. 13, Katy Börner, Distinguished Professor and the Victor H.
