Communication Science Workshop (ComSciCon)

Modified: January 19, 2016

Applications are now open for the Communicating Science 2016 workshop in Cambridge, MA on June 9-11th, 2016. Graduate students at US institutions in all fields of science and engineering are encouraged to apply. Attendance of the workshop is free and travel support will be provided to accepted applications. The application deadline is March 1, 2016.

Participants will build the communication skills that scientists and other technical professionals need to express complex ideas to their peers, experts in other fields, and the general public.

There will be panel discussions on the following topics:

  • Communicating with Non-Scientific Audiences through Media Outlets
  • Communicating through Policy and Advocacy
  • Communicating through Creative Outlets and Storytelling
  • Communicating through Education and Outreach
  • Communicating with Diverse Audiences

In addition to these discussions, ample time is allotted for interacting with the experts and with attendees from throughout the country to discuss science communication and develop science outreach collaborations. Workshop participants will produce an original piece of science writing and receive feedback from workshop attendees and professional science communicators, including journalists, authors, public policy advocates, educators, and more.

Visit the website to submit an application or learn more about past workshop programs and participants. For any questions or concerns, please contact the conference via email.
