Immigration and Travel Issues for Foreign Scientists and Technology Workers

WASHINGTON, DC An increase in the number of visa denials or delays may have a significant impact on the ability of U.S. companies to recruit the best and brightest scientists and engineers. On Monday, 23 June 2003, from 6:00 8:00 p.m., AAAS, the science society, will bring together immigration professionals to consider the issues of travel for scientists from foreign countries.

What effect is visa regulation having on the ability to recruit and retain foreign scientists? What documentation is required under new federal immigration laws? How do foreign-born employees transition from temporary to permanent work-authorized U.S. status?

These questions and more will be addressed by the following speakers:

  • Crispin Taylor, Moderator, AAAS, Editorial Director of Science's Next Wave
  • Lisa Piascik, Director of Public and Diplomatic Liaison, Visa Office of the United States Department of State
  • Jeff Goldman, Legal Counsel, Immigration Practice Group, Testa, Hurwitz & Thibeault, LLP

MEDIA NOTE: Dr. Alan I. Leshner, AAAS CEO and executive publisher of its journal, Science, will be available for interviews, along with other Association officials. See Dr. Leshner's article on the student-visa crisis in the 30 May issue of the Financial Times.(A related story is online at http://www.aaas.org)
