eBriefings allow the Academy's worldwide membership to experience our events online, at their convenience, through the ease of an Internet connection. Designed to provide busy scientists the latest information in an accessible format, they are an integral part of the Academy's activities, documenting our Frontiers of Science conferences and discussion group meetings, and greatly expanding their impact.
These unique multimedia presentations contain meeting summaries by professional science writers; speakers' slides and audio; video interviews; and links to other related information, including relevant journal articles, Web sites, books, and speakers' home pages. They are designed not just for specialists, but also for scientists and others looking to expand their knowledge about new research in other fields.
