dedicated to advancing science around the world by serving as an
educator, leader, spokesperson and professional association. AAAS publishes the
as well as many scientific newsletters, books and reports, and
spearheads programs that raise the bar of understanding for
Institute of Physics (AIP)
A 501(c)(3) not-for-profit membership
corporation created for the purpose of promoting the advancement
and diffusion of the knowledge of physics and its application to
human welfare. It is the mission of the Institute to serve the
sciences of physics and astronomy by serving its member
societies, by serving individual scientists, and by serving
students and the general public.
American Physical Society (APS)
The objective of the Society is the advancement and diffusion of
the knowledge of physics, to advance that objective by
presenting ethical guidelines for Society members.
American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE)
organization of individuals and institutions committed to
furthering education in engineering and engineering technology.
Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Nanotechnology Institute
Dedicated to further the art, science, and
practice of nanotechnology. Clearinghouse for ASME activities in
resource and advocate promoting access to medical care for
consumers and health professionals via telecommunications
technology. ATA seeks to bring together diverse groups from
traditional medicine, academic medical centers, technology and
telecommunications companies, e-health, medical societies,
government and others to overcome barriers to the advancement of
telemedicine through the professional, ethical and equitable
improvement in health care delivery.
Biophysical Society (BS)
Encourages development and dissemination of knowledge in biophysics.
It does so through its many programs, including its meetings, publications, and
committee outreach activities. The Society's members work in
academia, industry, and in government agencies throughout the world.
Intends to guide emerging technologies to
improve the human condition with a focus on nanotechnology.
Huntsville Electro-Optical Society (HEOS)
Functions concurrently as a local section of
the Optical Society of America (OSA)and as a regional chapter of
The International Society for Optical Engineering (SPIE). It is the aim
of HEOS to stimulate interest in
optics and the engineering of optical systems; to promote the
mutual needs of its members; and to encourage free discussions
of problems and discoveries among investigators of optical
problems, designers, manufacturers, and users of optical
apparatus. Membership in HEOS is open to all with appropriate
training, experience, or interest in any branch of optics or
electro-optics: in research, in instruction, in optical or
illumination engineering, in the manufacture and distribution of
optical instruments, or physiological and medical optics.
Institute for Molecular
Nonprofit foundation formed in 1991 to conduct
and support research in molecular systems engineering and
molecular manufacturing. Promotes guidelines for research and
development practices that will minimize risk from accidental
misuse or from abuse of molecular nanotechnology.
Institute of Physics (IOP)
A scientific membership organization
devoted to increasing the understanding and application of
physics. It has an extensive worldwide membership and is a leading communicator of physics with all
audiences from specialists through government to the general
public. Its publishing company, IOP Publishing, is a world
leader in scientific publishing and the electronic dissemination
International Association of Physics Students (IAPS)
Aims to build a network of contacts between
physics students from around the world, to offer them a
program of events and to support them in their academic and
Research center for nanotechnology at the
University of Massachusetts Amherst.
Optical Society of America (OSA)
Society organized to increase and diffuse the knowledge of optics, pure and applied;
to promote the common interests of investigators of optical problems, of designers and
of users of optical apparatus of all kinds; and to encourage cooperation among them.
The purposes of the Society are scientific, technical and educational.
Society of Physics Students (SPS)
A professional association explicitly designed for students.
Membership, through collegiate chapters, is open to anyone interested in
physics. The only requirement for membership is that you be interested in
physics. Besides physics majors, our members include majors in chemistry,
computer science, engineering, geology, mathematics, medicine, and other fields.
