The Arnold and Mabel Beckman Center in Irvine, California is jointly owned by the National Academy of Sciences and the National Academy of Engineering. Made possible by a gift from the Arnold and Mabel Beckman Foundation, it has operated as a conference facility by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine since 1988 and is the headquarters of several Academies activities.

The 48,000 square foot facility includes an auditorium, lecture room, board room, conference rooms, offices, and indoor and outdoor dining areas. The Center has excellent facilities to support both short-term and long-term committee meetings, workshops, conferences, and symposia.

Groups of varying size can be accommodated with ample room for plenary sessions, break-out areas for writing sessions, and dining and social activities. Elevators, ramps and designated parking spaces offer access for the physically challenged.
