ComSciCon-AIP 2019

ComsciCon-AIP is a two day event organized in collaboration between ComSciCon (Communicating Science Conference) and AIP (American Institute of Physcs), held at American Center for Physics in College Park Maryland on September 23-24, 2019. The ComSciCon workshops empower graduate students to communicate research in science, engineering and other technical fields to broad and diverse audiences. ComSciCon-AIP 2019 will focus on the physical sciences and the program will include panels on media engagement, policymaking, storytelling, and opportunities to network and workshop science communication pieces.


Our workshop program also weaves together sessions specifically designed for AIP Member Society Staff/Volunteers, as well as more general science communication programming. Staff/Volunteer members from all AIP Member Societies, Affiliated Societies, and Member Organizations are encouraged to attend!
