Abstract : Premise: There is a need for change in the scientific culture to accommodate a new population. The need for change is compounded by the fact that science Itself has and is changing rapidly.

Purposes of the Conference: Exploring and developing strategies to improve the culture in science and the quality of scientific endeavor; Identifying factors that discourage interest and participation in science ;Improving communication by establishing a new model for interaction between scientists; Exploring ways to initiate positive change in diverse environments.
