The 6th annual ComSciCon National Workshop, happening June 14th-16th, 2018, will take place in Boston, MA!
Applications are now open. Graduate students at U.S. and Canadian institutions in all fields of science, technology, engineering, health, mathematics, and related fields are encouraged to apply. The application will close on March 1st. Acceptance to the workshop is competitive; attendance is free, and travel support and lodging will be provided to accepted applicants.
At ComSciCon's National 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.
This year, there will be panel discussions on the following topics:
- Creative / Digital Storytelling
- Diversity / Inclusivity in Science and Science Communication
- Science Journalism
- Case Study: Science Communication in Medicine
In addition to these discussions, ample time is allocated for networking with science communication experts and developing science outreach collaborations with fellow graduate students. 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.
