Western Pennsylvania and Greater Pittsburgh
The Pennsylvania Chapter of ASciNA is centered around Carnegie Mellon University, University of Pittsburgh, and UPMC, all in the urban center of Greater Pittsburgh. The membership consists of an interesting mix of longtime Austrian scientists living and working in Pittsburgh, and visitors (mostly students, post-docs, and visiting clinicians) who stay in town anywhere between 3 months and a couple of years.
As a small chapter, everybody knows everybody,
and chapter meetings tend to be informal. We occasionally host
visits of Austrian officials. For newcomers, we have mapped out the
city and pass on the knowledge of how to do all the necessary
things, and where to go for fun. Old-timers share the latest
changes and the newest shortcuts they discovered.
