Of Interest To Next Year's Topic

Recommended Posts

The American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) and IEEE-USA will co-sponsor “A Spark Deferred: The Impact of ITAR and Immigration Policy on the Future of America’s Technology Sector†on Wednesday, June 27. This luncheon event will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in Room 188 of the Russell Senate Office Building, Constitution Ave. and First St. NE, Washington, D.C. 20002. The panel discussion will highlight barriers existing in the current student visa system and in the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) regime that restrict foreign students from working in high-value research areas and within the U.S. technology sector, and how these barriers limit future growth in these sections, imperiling the U.S. economy and national security. The panel will be moderated by Dr. Annalisa Weigel, Charles Stark Draper Career Development Assistant Professor of Aeronautics, Astronautics, and Engineering Systems, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Panelists for the event will be: Dr. Robert P. Breault, chairman of the board, Breault Research Organization; Dr. Claude R. Canizares, vice president for research, and associate provost, MIT; and Mark E. Harrington, founder and principal partner, The Harrington Law Firm, Houston, Texas.

I am sure that the conversation will include references to how the current ITAR and Immigration regimes hurt our nation's infrastructure, and how reforms are crucial before advancement in infrastructure can be made.

 

I hope that those of you in the DC area will be able to attend.
