Programs

ComSciCon organizes two types of workshops for graduate students:

ComSciCon June workshops

Rob Lue at ComSciCon13

These annual summer workshops, held in Cambridge, MA, are open to graduate students nationwide, and are free to attend for accepted applicants.  Our goal is to empower future leaders in technical communication to share the results from research in their field to broad and diverse audiences, not just practitioners in their fields.   For more information about ComSciCon national workshops, read about our inaugural 2013 event.

The next national ComSciCon workshop will be held in June 2014.  Applications for the workshops are open to graduate students from all fields of science and engineering who are interested in learning how to effectively communicate their res

earch to both scientific and non-scientific audiences.

ComSciCon-local January workshops

This new series of local workshops is open specifically to graduate students in the Harvard and MIT community, during the universities' January term.  Like the summer workshops, attendees will learn and practice valuable skills for communicating their research and scholarship in their field to broad and diverse audiences, while interacting with and leaders in technical communication from the greater Boston area.

The first ComSciCon-local workshop will be held in January 2014.
