For all graduate students in STEM and related fields:
Applications are now open for ComSciCon 2017, the 5th annual Communicating Science workshop, to be held in Cambridge, MA on June 8-10, 2017. Graduate students at U.S. institutions in all fields of science, technology, engineering, health, mathematics, and related fields are encouraged to apply.
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 Media and Journalism, Science Advocacy, and Diversity in Science Communication), ample time is allotted for networking with science communication experts and developing science outreach collaborations with fellow graduate students.
Visit the ComSciCon website to submit an application or learn more about past workshop programs and participants. Direct questions to firstname.lastname@example.org. The application deadline is March 1, 2017.
ComSciCon is sponsored by Harvard University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, University of Colorado Boulder, American Association for the Advancement of Science, American Astronomical Society, American Chemical Society, The Optical Society, IOP Publishing, and the American Institute of Physics.
