In 1997, the Miller
Institute broadened its charge with the addition of an Interdisciplinary
Symposium. Our intention was to promote discussion of cutting-edge science
among leading researchers through a weekend of scientific interaction and discussion.
The Research Fellows were the catalyst behind this program and they helped to
design it as a freewheeling discussion across all the sciences, including
astronomy, biology, chemistry, geology, mathematics and physics.
Institute's Annual Interdisciplinary Symposium takes place the first weekend
of June annually and is held at the Marconi Conference Center on Beautiful Tomales Bay in Marin County, California. Participation is
by invitation only.
