[petition] "We will not attend US conferences until our colleagues can."

Science is a global endeavour, which thrives on openness, fairness and collaboration. It is stifled and undermined by division and discrimination. The United States has greatly benefited from free and open international collaboration, and has been one of its strongest promoters. Many of us work together with scientists in the US and have enjoyed the hospitality of its institutions or benefited from its facilities and grants. Many of us have studied, taught or worked in the US and formed close and lasting collaborations and friendships. (...) - science-undivided.or,

Grad students, postdocs with U.S. visas face uncertainty

Grad students, postdocs with U.S. visas face uncertainty | Higher Education and academic research | Scoop.it

New worries over draft order on skilled worker visas


The postdoc faces an excruciating choice. He has 6 months left on a U.S. work permit issued to many foreign graduate students and postdocs: a 1-year Optional Practical Training (OPT) permit. OPTs are routinely extended for two more years for those in science, technology, engineering, or math (STEM). But the developmental biologist, who works at a major California university, is from Iran, one of seven countries whose citizens are banned from travel to the United States for 90 days as new vetting procedures are put in place. (U.S. courts on 3 and 5 February put an emergency stay on the ban; an appeal by the Trump administration was pending at press time.) (...) - Science, by Meredith Wadman, Richard Stone, Feb 7, 2017

U.S. science conferences brace for boycotts: The ScienceInsider briefing | Higher Education and academic research | Scoop.it

A roundup of recent policy news


As an intense week winds into what may very well be an intense weekend, scientists around the world are starting to make their voices heard on U.S. science-related policy, in particular on President Donald Trump’s executive order on immigration. But will they be shouting into a void? That’s what some researchers think, as boycotts of science conferences based in the United States begin to blossom. Already, 5800 researchers around the world have signed one boycott petition, and some astronomers are asking their society not to hold meetings in the United States. Meanwhile, a scientist from one of the affected countries—Iran—has just been sentenced to death in his home country for unknown reasons. (...) - Science, by Catherine Matacic, Feb. 3, 2017
