Reflecting on ComSciCon-Cornell, a regional workshop for upstate New York

July 22, 2015

The culminating session at the national ComSciCon workshop of 2014 had one goal in mind: appeal to attendees to hold a local version of the workshop back at their home institutions. This goal was necessary, given that at the time approximately 850 STEM graduate students from around the country had applied for a mere 50 slots available at the national workshop.

The application period for the ComSciCon 2015 national workshop has now ended, and nearly 1000 graduate students from universities across the United States have applied to attend.

The applications are under review now by our graduate student Organizing Committee, with admissions announcements to be made on March 23rd. 

With more than 970 applications in total, we received the highest volume of applications ever for a ComSciCon workshop.  Each application will be anonymized and read by at least two reviewers.

As we did after last year's ComSciCon workshop, we have now released a document that summarizes and reflects upon the activities and outcomes of the ComSciCon 2014 National Leadership Workshop. The event brought together 50 of the brightest graduate student science communicators from around the country to participate in panel discussions, writing and editing practice, networking, and much more.
