The Atlantic meets the Pacific is a forum presented by The Atlantic magazine and the University of California at San Diego. Together, they are gathering some of the country’s foremost writers and cutting-edge thinkers to explore new frontiers in science, energy, health, media, and technology. Many of these conversations will take place at the Scripps Seaside Forum, an ocean-front conference center located in the heart of the UC San Diego Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO). The forum will include behind-the-scenes tours at SIO, UC San Diego’s CalIT2 digital media laboratory, and the Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute.
