National Academy of Sciences Colloquia

Bound Reprints Available

In 1991, the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) inaugurated a series of scientific colloquia, several of which are held each year under the auspices of the NAS Coun cil Committee on Scientific Programs. These colloquia address scientific topics of broad and topical interest that cut across two or more traditional disciplines. Typically two days long, these colloquia are international in scope and bring together leading scientists in the field.

Papers presented at these colloquia are published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) and are available online ( Because they have generated much interest, these papers are now available in the form of collected bound reprints, which may be ordered through the National Academy Press.
