Attention graduate students: Applications for the 12th annual ComSciCon Flagship Workshop (hashtag #ComSciCon24), to be held 24-27 July in Boston, Massachusetts, are open!

ComSciCon provides graduate student attendees 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 technical science and engineering concepts to a new audience.

At ComSciCon's Flagship Workshop, participants build communication skills that scientists and other technical professionals need to express ideas to their peers, experts in other fields, and the general public.

Application, registration, and attendance at the workshop are free of charge for accepted applicants. ComSciCon attendees are required to complete pre-workshop requirements and to attend the entire 3-day workshop.

Attendance at ComSciCon is limited to current (or recently graduated) graduate students in residence at US or Canadian institutions. International students who study at US and Canadian institutions are gladly welcomed. Recent graduates must have graduated no earlier than December 2023.

ComSciCon is committed to equity and inclusion. We strongly encourage applicants from historically underrepresented groups, including but not limited to the following groups: the Black community, Native Americans and Indigenous Peoples, minoritized racial and ethnic groups, persons with disabilities, and the LGBTQIA2S+ community. 

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.
