ComSciConversation is a blog by ComSciCon, for anyone affiliated with ComSciCon. We aim to be a low-barrier way to get those write-a-thon pieces you worked so hard on during the workshop out into the world! In addition, we'd also love to feature success stories from our community or recaps of workshops. If you have an idea for a post, get in touch!

Submit your post or pitch!

We're so excited you want to publish a piece on the ComSciCon blog! Before submitting, please review these basic guidelines:

  • Please try to avoid acronyms, and be sure to define any you need to use.
  • Include hyperlinks to additional reading material as necessary. We recommend linking to popular science articles, explainer articles or websites, or even Wikipedia (though sparingly). You may also choose to include references to journal articles (preferably open access).
  • Include an image or two as appropriate, along with a brief caption. Be sure to refer to the figures in the text!

Stephanie Deppe, our Editor-in-Chief, thanks you in advance for making her job easier!

Alternatively, if you don't have a full piece yet but want to pitch your story idea, make sure to indicate that in the form linked below and either upload or link to a file containing your pitch idea where noted in the form! Stephanie will be glad to work with you to develop your idea into a story.
