Attendees of the 2019 Annual Meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science will celebrate three milestones that exemplify the 2019 meeting theme of science transcending boundaries. The 150th anniversary of the presentation of the periodic table of elements helped bridge the gap between chemistry, physics, and biology, while the 50th anniversary of Neil Armstrong's moonwalk and the first messages sent on the nascent internet erased the boundary between Earth and space and brought the world closer together than ever.

The 2019 annual meeting, to be held 14 to 17 February in Washington, D.C., will highlight research that brings together people, ideas, and solutions across boundaries in plenary and topical lectures, scientific sessions, career workshops, and public events such as Family Science Days. Among the topics to be discussed are the challenges of climate change, artificial intelligence, drug discovery, criminal justice, and more.
