US Presidential Candidates' Forum

WASHINGTON, DC - On September 30, AAAS will host a special Candidates' Forum on Science & Technology Policy, at which representatives of the U.S. presidential campaigns of incumbent George W. Bush and challenger John Kerry will discuss their plans and policies for science and technology.

The Forum will take place in the AAAS Auditorium, 12th and H Streets, N.W., Washington, DC, from 1 to 2:30 p.m. on Thursday, September 30, 2004.

Former House Science Committee Chairman Bob Walker will represent the Bush campaign. Mr. Walker is chairman of Wexler & Walker Public Policy Associates and has been described as "perhaps the best political and policy strategist and tactician in Washington." Speaking on behalf of the Kerry-Edwards campaign will be Henry Kelly. Dr. Kelly, a physicist, is former assistant director for technology of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy. He is currently president of the Federation of American Scientists. Mary Woolley, president of Research!America, will moderate the event.

Each speaker will have the opportunity to make a short opening statement. The rest of the time will be devoted to Q&A.

This event is sponsored by the Washington Science Policy Alliance, a loosely-knit coalition of institutions that has banded together to conduct seminars and meetings around specific science and technology policy issues.
