COUNCIL OF SCIENTIFIC SOCIETY PRESIDENTS
September 30, 2010
The Council of Scientific Society Presidents (CSSP) is a tremendously valuable resource for professional associations and the individuals who represent the associations at the semi-annual CSSP meetings. The meetings offer informative presentations by first rate scientists about current trends and developments in the sciences and science policy. In addition, they provide valuable opportunities for networking, discussion, and exchange across the disciplinary boundaries of the scientific associations represented. At a time when interdisciplinary collaboration across science and social science disciplines are becoming increasingly important, CSSP and the networking and information sharing opportunities it offers are invaluable.
