The AAAS Annual Meeting is happening this week. Join us at the Improbable Research session, on Thursday, February 11, from 2:15 to 3:15. Navigate to the AAAS Meeting live channel <https://virtual.aaas.org/landing>
(NOTE: The Improbable Research session is a public session, which means that you can probably watch it even if you have not paid to attend the entire Annual Meeting. You may have to register (at no cost) first.)
Improbability in the Past
In 1996 the AAAS (the American Association for the Advancement of Science) asked us to do a special session—about Improbable Research—at their Annual Meeting. That session drew a crowd, rave responses, and press coverage around the world. We’ve done a special session there at every year since. “There” is a flexible concept here—the AAAS Annual Meeting bounces happily to a different North American city each year. Last year, 2020, it was in Seattle. In this pandemic year, though, the whole meeting is happening online.
