Lin Elected AAAS Fellow

The Council of the American Association for the Advancement of Science has elected CISAC's Herb Lin to the rank of AAAS Fellow, in honor of his “invaluable contributions to science and technology.” As an AAAS Fellow, Lin is joining the ranks of other distinguished scientists, such as inventor Thomas Edison (1878), anthropologist Margaret Mead (1934), and computer scientist Grace Hopper (1963). Lin and other new fellows will be recognized at the Fellows Forum on February 15, during the AAAS Annual Meeting in Seattle, Washington.

CISAC Seeks New Fellows

"I have really appreciated the way that CISAC values the engagement of scholars with the real world and with policy relevance of what we are researching," said former CISAC Fellow Fiona Cunningham. "We’re not just stuck in the ivory tower, but actually making our research make the world a better place." For 2020-2021, CISAC seeks to offer ~15 fellowships to those who are researching topics related to international security, nuclear security, biosecurity, and cybersecurity that contain elements of policy-relevance. Applications are due January 15, 2020. Watch the video below and learn more.

U.S. expert calls for 'tailored sanctions relief' on path to N.K. denuclearization

"Siegfried S. Hecker, a renowned American nuclear scientist, called Thursday for "tailored" sanctions relief for North Korea to promote inter-Korean economic exchanges and make progress in efforts to denuclearize the communist nation. Hecker, known for his direct experience with the North's nuclear program, also urged Pyongyang to return to the negotiating table, stressing that Washington has signaled its willingness to show flexibility in the hitherto unfruitful nuclear negotiations."
