After the successful convening of Regional Science Meetings (RSMs) in Mindanao and Visayas on 12-13 April and 26-27 April 2023 consecutively, the National Academy of Science and Technology (NAST), in cooperation with DOST-CAR, will conduct the Luzon Regional Scientific Meeting (LRSM) on 17-18 May 2023 physically in Baguio City and will be broadcast via Zoom and Facebook Live.
This year’s theme of RSM and Annual Scientific Meeting - “Agham at Teknolohiya para sa Demokrasya (Science and Technology for Democracy)” - is firmly grounded on the role of science and technology in catalyzing and advancing development empowerment in a democracy.
The RSMs are annually organized as part of the NAST PHL’s and DOST’s long-standing commitment of bringing science closer to the Filipino people and seen as a venue for the discussion of relevant and timely regional concerns, and the presentation of S&T-based recommendations.
The scientific meetings will serve as a forum to discuss the role of science and technology in achieving greater inclusion and welfare. The regional gatherings also aim to present the utilization of science and technology in strengthening democratic institutions and processes.
Another highlight of the RSM is the annual scientific poster session which will feature the latest regional research outputs of participating higher education institutions, research centers, and government agencies. Posters to be presented in the poster session will be screened by the DOST Regional Offices.
Due to the limited on-site participation, the general public are invited to register for FREE and join the conference virtually via Zoom. Public plenary sessions of the conference will be held from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM. Participants will receive an e-certificate for both dates of the regional meeting upon submission of an accomplished evaluation form.
