The U.S. Food and Drug Administration will hold a two-day Science Forum that is open to the public. The event will be held May 27 and May 28 at in the Building 31 Great Room on the FDA's White Oak Campus in Silver Spring, MD. Registration is open now through May 15.

Even if you can't make it, you don't have to miss it. The FDA will be recording the presentations and posting them online afterward at http://www.fda.gov/ScienceResearch/AboutScienceResearchatFDA/ucm429403.htm

The focus for this year's forum is on emerging technologies. There is no fee for attending the forum, but you must be registered in advance because seating is limited and there is no registration at the door.
