ComSciCon provides graduate students with a one-of-a-kind opportunity to meet early career leaders in science communication, to learn from and interact with a remarkable group of invited experts, and to produce an original work communicating complex science and engineering concepts to a new audience.

Application, registration, and attendance at the workshop is free of charge. Successful applicants are required to attend the entire 3-day workshop and to submit a science communication piece (article, video, comic, etc.) prior to the event.

Attendance at ComSciCon is limited to current or recent graduate students in residence at US or Canadian institutions. International students who study at US and Canadian institutions are gladly welcomed. We unfortunately cannot accept students from outside the US or Canada.

We encourage women, BIPOC, people with disabilities, members of the LGBTQIA+ communities, and all other people with any intersection of minoritized and/or marginalized identities to apply. ComSciCon is committed to diversity and equity and encourages all grad students interested in science communication to apply to the conference.

The application deadline is Thursday, 15 April 2021, at 11:59 pm Eastern time.

Accommodations can be provided upon request for people with disabilities. We will provide opportunities to request specific accommodations after the selection process for attendees is complete.
