Grad Students: Apply Now for ComSciCon 2018
Applications are now open for ComSciCon 2018, the 6th annual Communicating Science workshop, to be held in Boston, MA, 14-16 June 2018. Graduate students at US and Canadian institutions in all fields of science, technology, engineering, health, mathematics, and related fields are encouraged to apply. Deadline: 1 March.
Acceptance to the workshop is competitive; attendance is free, and travel support and lodging will be provided to accepted applicants.
Participants will build the communication skills that scientists and other technical professionals need to express complex ideas to the general public, experts in other fields, and their peers. In additional to panel discussions (on topics such as creative storytelling, science journalism, diversity/inclusivity, and a case study on scicomm in medicine), ample time is allotted for networking with science communication experts and developing science outreach collaborations with fellow graduate students.
ComSciCon, a project of The Story Collider, is sponsored by Emerson College, MIT, The American Chemical Society, The American Astronomical Society, and the American Institute of Physics.
