World Science Day for Peace and Development comes round again on 10 November. The start of the three-day World Science Forum has been timed to co-incide with the Day. During the Forum, which is hosted by the Hungarian government in Budapest, an international roundtable will be organized by UNESCO, ISESCO and others on the role of parliamentarians in S&T policy. This year's laureates of UNESCO's science prizes will also receive their awards at the Forum.
