The New Normal: The perils of being a Chinese scientist and engineer in the U.S.

U.S. government concerns about alleged intellectual property theft are driving what feels to many Chinese scientists and engineers like a witch-hunt. A string of actions, including the arrest of Chinese-born American scientists, the firing of several others and closure of their labs, frequent FBI calls and visits to many individuals without any charge, and a tightened visa process for Chinese STEM students-have shocked the Chinese science and technology community, raising concerns about racial profiling. 

What is the new reality for the Chinese science and technology community? And how to legally navigate the storm? Is it okay to do research both here in the U.S. and also in China? What is the guideline for academic and entrepreneurial exchange and cooperation? Is the U.S. government being paranoid, or are the spying concerns valid? 

Join Temple University Professor Xiaoxing Xi, who was charged with spying by the Justice Department (the charge was dropped and he is suing the FBI), Peter Zeidenberg, partner at Arent Fox LLP, and Aaron Wolfson, former prosecutor and current partner at King & Wood Mallesons law firm, for a timely discussion of the perils of being a Chinese scientist or engineer in the U.S.

*Additional panelists to be announced shortly.
