Chicago Communicating Science Conference (ComSciCon-Chicago)

Created: April 30, 2018

Chicago-area graduate students are invited to apply for the Chicago Communicating Science Conference (ComSciCon-Chicago), to be held at the British International School of Chicago -- Lincoln Park on the weekend of August 25-26, 2018. 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.

They 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 will close on at 11:59 PM on May 20. There will be no cost or fee to attend this conference, 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, the University of Illinois at Chicago, University of Chicago, Northern Illinois University, and University of Notre Dame.

For more information, please contact ComSciCon organizing committee at chicago@comscicon.org.

This workshop is generously supported by The Story Collider; The Field Museum; the Graduate College, College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, and Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Illinois at Chicago; The Graduate School and Department of Biology at Northern Illinois University; and the Graduate Leadership and Advisory Council at Northwestern University.
