The theme of this year's annual meeting is on global issues, crises, and policy. Distinguished speakers presented timely issues and led extensive discussions related to energy security, the future of nuclear energy, dual use biomedical research of concern, science and technology in global affairs and government service. Presidents of the National Academy of Sciences, National Academy of Engineering, and Institute of Medicine also shared with the Circle members and guests recent efforts by the National Academies, and reflected on the Academies' response toward challenges to the Nation.
