We are glad to announce that we will hold our annual national Communicating Science (ComSciCon) workshop in June of 2014! This will be the second in our series of workshops providing a unique professional development experience to graduate students engaged in and committed to communicating the results of research in science and engineering to broad and diverse audiences.
To celebrate the success of our inaugural 2013 Communicating Science workshop (ComSciCon'13), we are posting a report reflecting on the workshop and summarizing the lasting outcomes of the event that have emerged since June. This includes a survey of the 50 phenomenal graduate students who attended the workshop, the 21 fantastic professional communicators who participated as invited experts, the 11 publications our attendees, and the 3 newAstrobites-spin off organizations that were launched by attendees.
