If you go

Who: Graduate students in STEM
What: ComSciCon 2018
When: June 14–16
Where: Boston, Massachusetts

Apply by March 1

Acceptance to the workshop is competitive; a total of 50 graduate students will be selected to attend. 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 addition to panel discussions (on topics such as creative storytelling, science journalism, diversity/inclusivity and a case study on science communications in medicine), ample time is allotted for networking with science-communication experts and developing science-outreach collaborations with fellow graduate students.
