This document consists of a report titled "Scientific Proposals in Connection with a Possible Summit Meeting," transmitted to E.O. Lawrence, of University of California Radiation Laboratory, by D.Z. Beckler, of the President's Science Advisory Committee. The report states that the objective of the conference would be to reduce tensions and move in the direction of a more peaceful world, and that the U.S. should emphasize proposals that seek primarily to establish a more solid basis for scientific cooperation between the three western powers and the USSR. Specific proposals include: Council of National Acadamies of Science of Summit Powers; Flow (Exchange) of Scientific Personnel; Extension of the International Geophysical Year (IGY) Program; Creation of a Laboratory Attached to the International Atomic Energy Agency; and Cooperation in Biological and Medical Research.
