We have been living with the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) for over one year, and the crisis has forced change upon every aspect of our lives. What can science do for society at this crossroads? How can science bring safety and abundance to society? Now more than ever, we must take a fresh look at the role science should play in society. For that reason, "dialogue" will play an even greater role in Science Agora 2021. Through dialogue, let us envision the role and future of science and technology across a wide range of topics that touch every axis of our lives.
