Summary

BEIJING-- On 1 to 3 November, the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) held a symposium at which half a dozen Nobelists pondered the challenges facing science in the next millennium. The idea came from CAS President Lu Yongxiang, who oversees the country's premier network of research laboratories and is leading CAS through the most ambitious reorganization in its history. Lu laid out his vision for CAS in a 2-hour interview with Science at the conclusion of the symposium. Science gives excerpts from that conversation.
