Programs

Rob Lue at ComSciCon13ComSciCon organizes two types of workshops for graduate students:

ComSciCon Flagship Workshops

These annual summer workshops are open to graduate students throughout the US and Canada, 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 flagship workshops, read about our inaugural 2013 event.

Applications for the workshops are open to graduate students from all fields of science and engineering who are interested in becoming leaders in effectively communicate their research to both scientific and non-scientific audiences.

Panel discussion at ComSciCon'13ComSciCon Franchise Workshops

ComSciCon endeavours to offer workshops for specific graduate student communities within individual universities, disciplines, or regions.  Like the flagship workshops, attendees learn and practice valuable skills for communicating their research and scholarship in their field to broad and diverse audiences, while interacting with leaders in technical communication from their local region.

BiteScis K12 Program

BiteScis has a dual mission to increase the interaction between the broad base of practicing researchers in science—graduate students—and the K12 classroom.  Founded by ComSciCon organizers and advised by a board of experts in education from across the contry, the BiteScis program will create a new web resource focused on making the methods and modern practice of scientific research accessible to the next generation of scientists.
