The GYSS is an annual multi-disciplinary summit that brings together eminent scientific minds and young scientists to foster the exchange among scientists of different generations, culture and disciplines. This year’s event featured 21 distinguised plenary speakers who are recipients of Nobel Prize (15); Turing Award (2); Fields Medal (3); and Millennium Technology Prize (1).

Some 1,000 outstanding young scientists specially nominated by the institutions around the world participated and had the privilege of attending the live plenary lectures and panel discussions. Of this total, about 500 had the opportunity to interact personally with the featured speakers, and fellow participants in all other sessions, including small group informal sessions, and live Q&A following each plenary and panel session.
