We are excited to annouce the 5th annual ComSciCon National Workshop, happening June 8th-10th, 2017 in Cambridge, MA! Applications are now open, and will be accepted through March 1st. Visit this page to apply.
Graduate students at U.S. institutions in all fields of science, technology, engineering, health, mathematics, and related fields are encouraged to apply.
As for past ComSciCon national workshops, acceptance to the workshop is competitive; attendance is free and travel support and lodging will be provided to accepted applicants.
Participants will build the communication skills that scientists and other technical professionals need to express complex ideas to the general public, experts in other fields, and their peers. In additional to panel discussions (on topics such as Media and Journalism, Science Advocacy, and Diversity in Science Communication), ample time is allotted for networking with science communication experts and developing science outreach collaborations with fellow graduate students.
