CU Boulder faculty in aerospace, computer science and affiliated with the BioFrontiers Institute will speak on how insects can influence robots and what can be learned from asteroids at this year’s biggest science communications conference.
ScienceWriters2021 will be held Sept. 28–Oct. 8, 2021, in an all-virtual format.
The annual conference is the nation’s premier science communications gathering and is organized by the Council for the Advancement of Science Writing (CASW) and the National Association of Science Writers (NASW) in coordination with a different research institution each year.
CU Boulder and CU Anschutz Medical Campus will co-host the in-person conference in 2023—drawing hundreds of journalists and communicators to Boulder and Aurora—after the most recent COVID-19 surge resulted in cancellation of in-person events in 2021. St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is hosting the 2022 conference.
