Attendees to the Kavli symposia are selected by a committee of Academy members from among young researchers who have already made recognized contributions to science, including recipients of major national fellowships and awards and who have been identified as future leaders in science. The program began in 1989, and from its over 5000 alumni, more than 250 have been elected to the National Academy of Sciences, with 12 having been awarded Nobel Prizes.
