Venue & Lodging

The three-day event will be hosted at the New York Academy of Sciences. Since its founding in 1817 as the Lyceum of Natural History in the City of New York, the Academy has grown to include a society of some 20,000 scientists of all disciplines from 150 countries.

From 1949 to 2006, the Academy operated from premises that it owned at 2 East 63rd Street, New York, a neo-Italian Renaissance building built in 1919. In 2006, the Academy more than doubled its space by selling the Upper East Side facility and moving to rented space at 7 World Trade Center, overlooking the World Trade Center site and construction site of the Freedom Tower.
