Apply for ComSciCon-Chicago 2016

Modified: March 25, 2016

Chicago-area graduate students are invited to apply for the Communicating Science (ComSciCon-Chicago) workshop, to be held at Northwestern University’s Robert H. Lurie Medical Research Center on the weekend of August 6th-7th, 2016. 

The ComSciCon workshop series is designed to empower graduate students to communicate the complex concepts arising in science, engineering and other technical fields to diverse audiences. We have a stellar program of events planned for the two full days of the workshop.  Attendees will interact with fellow graduate student leaders in science communication, learn from expert writers and communicators including journalists, communication researchers, and scientists, and will produce original writing for publication.

The application for the workshop is now open and will close at 11:59pm on May 1st. There will be no cost or fee to graduate student attendees, but only a limited number of spots are available.  Attendees will be selected through a competitive application process.

ComSciCon-Chicago is organized by graduate students from Northwestern University and The University of Chicago.

This workshop is generously supported by Northwestern University’s The Graduate School, McCormick School of Engineering, Department of Materials Science/Materials Science Umbrella Society, Interdisciplinary Biological Sciences Program, Department of Chemistry, Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering, Plant Biology & Conservation, the UChicago Dean's Council, and the Chicago Biomedical Consortium.
