中国旅美科技协会(简称旅美科协)第19届年会定于2011年5月28日至29日在美国北卡罗来纳大学(University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill)举行。本届年会定为“中美科技论坛”，由旅美科协北卡分会承办。特邀主讲和专题论坛都将围绕美国和中国的科技发展及其双边合作现状和前景，专题讨论将涉及生物医学、环境保护和政策以及信息科技诸领域。
The 19th Chinese Association for Science and Technology (CAST-USA) Convention will be held on May 28-29, 2011. The convention will be hosted by the Association’s North Carolina Chapter (CAST-NC) and held at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA.
This year’s convention, themed “U.S.-China Science and Technology Forum,” will focus on the broad opportunities we are facing in U.S.-China collaboration in science and technology development, particularly in the fields of agriculture, biomedical science and technologies, environmental protection and policy, and information science and technology. The State of North Carolina, already very strong in these fields, doubtlessly can be strengthened further by collaborating more with rising global economies such as China. We will hear keynote speeches and panel discussions addressing these topics throughout the convention.
CAST-USA was founded in 1992 with a primary purpose to promote a stronger partnership between the United States and China in sciences and technology exchange and business developments. The association consists of thousands of scholars and scientists with roots in China but also advanced degrees, mostly doctorates, now working in the United States. Hundreds of members across the country are expected to attend this annual gathering of many of America’s best and hardest working talents.
