A special community briefing on three newly named Kyoto Prize Laureates launched the 2013-14 Kyoto Prize Symposium season during a reception held on June 21.

Just hours after the new laureates were announced by the Inamori Foundation in Kyoto, Japan, nearly 100 San Diegans attended the event held in Carmel Valley at Morrison and Foerster and hosted by David Doyle, Kyoto Symposium Organization (KSO) board chairman. The goal of the summer kick-off event, said Doyle, “is to keep broadening understanding of the Symposium and participation of this community.”

The new laureates and their categories are Robert Heath Dennard, Advanced Technology; Masatoshi Nei, Basic Sciences; and Cecil Taylor, Arts and Philosophy. Their work was outlined in brief  talks at the reception by Steve Welter, San Diego State University Vice President for Research and Graduate Dean; Mark Thiemens, UC San Diego Dean of Physical Sciences, and Jay Scovie, North American Media Liaison for the Inamori Foundation.
