      Here are brief conference announcement:
      The Fulbright Academy's Fifth Annual Conference will be a four-day
      extravaganza in San Francisco, California on March 11-14, 2010
      (Thursday-Sunday).
      How are Fulbright scholars in business, government, NGO and higher
      education working - individually or collaboratively - to prepare for and
      secure a better future? How are science, technology and other innovations
      being used as a catalyst for economic development? How are social
      sciences playing a role in the sustainability effort?
      As part of a Sustainability Initiative, FAST is convening a leadership
      group to make a real difference. Plenary lectures will lead into workshops
      giving all participants the opportunity to explore the potential
      compatibility of economic growth and social well-being.
      The conference will build upon the outcomes of previous FAST programs
      while also promoting some of the most current developments in areas such
      as economic and business sustainability, agricultural and food
      sustainability, social development and technological innovation. During
      the past five years, FAST conferences and workshops have been held in
      Ecuador, Germany, Macedonia, Morocco, Qatar, Singapore and the USA.
      At this conference, the 250+ participants will meet experts in economics,
      business development, engineering, natural and social sciences,
      technology, medicine, public policy, as well as Fulbright scholars whose
      personal or business interests relate to those fields. As with other FAST
      programs, the conference is designed for Fulbright alumni, hosts, and
      friends, but registration is open to the public.
