For all graduate students in STEM and related fields:
Applications are now open for ComSciCon 2019! The 7th annual Communicating Science workshop will be held in San Diego, CA, on July 11-13, 2019. Graduate students at U.S. and Canadian institutions in all fields of science, technology, engineering, health, mathematics, and related fields are encouraged to apply. The application will close on March 1st.
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 own peers. In addition to panel discussions (on topics such as Creative Storytelling, Science Journalism, and Diversity/Inclusivity), ample time will be 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, 2019.
