Attention all graduate students in STEM and related fields!
Applications are now open for ComSciCon 2018, the sixth annual Communicating Science workshop, to be held at Emerson College in Boston, Mass., June 14-16, 2018. Graduate students at U.S. and Canadian institutions in all fields of science, technology, engineering, health, mathematics and related fields are encouraged to apply. Applications will close on Thursday, March 1.
Acceptance to the workshop is competitive; attendance is free and travel support and lodging will be provided to accepted applicants.
Participants will build the communication skills that scientists and other technical professionals need to express complex ideas to the general public, experts in other fields, and their peers. In additional to panel discussions (on topics such as Creative Storytelling, Science Journalism, Diversity/Inclusivity, and a Case Study on Scicomm in Medicine), ample time is allotted for networking with science communication experts and developing science outreach collaborations with fellow graduate students.
You can follow the link below to submit an application or learn more about our workshop programs and participants, and we would appreciate it if you would forward this notice to any other interested graduate students you are affiliated with.
