Triangle Universities Center for Advanced Studies, Inc.
The 2012 New Horizons in Science briefing was hosted by the Triangle Universities Center for Advanced Studies, Inc. Sessions were held at the new Raleigh Convention Center on Sunday and Monday, Oct. 28-29, in conjunction with the annual meeting and workshops of the National Association of Science Writers and two days of tours that together made up ScienceWriters2012. The local coordinating group was SCONC, the Science Communicators of North Carolina.
The local host for ScienceWriters2012 wasn't just one university, it was an entire region: the Research Triangle of North Carolina. Many partners came together to make the meeting happen.
