Check out a great article about ComSciCon written by Chuck Leddy of the Harvard Gazette.
Communicating Science is a workshop organized by graduate students for graduate students focused on science communication skills. The workshop will emphasize written communication in particular and be held from Thursday, June 13, 2013 until Saturday, June 15, 2013 in Cambridge, MA. The workshop is intended for graduate students from all fields of science and engineering who are interested in learning how to effectively communicate their research to both scientific and non-scientific audiences.
The application deadline for the workshop closed on March 1st and all applicants have now been notified of admissions decisions. We received more than 700 applications for only 50 participant slots, so unfortunately many qualified applicants could not be accepted. Accepted applicants from outside the Boston area will receive full financial support for their travel and accommodations.
The 2.5 day workshop for 50 graduate students will feature panels by science and communications experts, writing workshops, and numerous opportunities to interact directly with the expert panelists. As part of the workshop, attendees will draft science compositions and receive feedback from the experts and other attendees.
