Dear ASCers,


ASC National Conference, ANU, 22 – 25 November


The program committee wants to know what you would like to hear, discuss or learn about at the ASC National Conference in November. And to get it all organised for you, we’d like to know by Friday 24 July.


The overall theme of the conference will be Engaging the Public with Science—and at present we are planning strands on social media, communicating climate change and other complex issues; risk; the arts in science communication, patenting and open source; as well as the latest in science communication research.


But it’s your conference—so we would like to hear what you want in terms of sessions and professional development, the topics in which you are interested or about which you would like to learn. If you can suggest speakers or instructors, even better.


We can’t guarantee everyone will be accommodated, but we will be trying hard to include something for all. And to do that we need to know you have in mind.
