ASC conferences are the premier Australian networking, knowledge making and professional development opportunity for those making science and technology accessible. Thanks to our major sponsor Monash Sustainable Development Institute, we will be returning to Victoria for the first time in over a decade, with the conference to be held in the new Learning and Teaching Building at Monash Campus from 17-19th February 2020. http://asc2020.asc.asn.au/
The theme of our 2020 Conference will address the urgency of the challenges we’re facing: priorities, policies and best practice science communication for human survival. What is the role for science engagement in setting policy priorities? How do communication efforts leverage behaviour change?
We will soon be opening registrations for producers and presenters to pitch their ideas for conference sessions. We will be trying several new formats in the 2020 conference to allow for maximum participation, with plenty of time for the face-to-face discussions that are constantly rated the most valuable aspect of the conference.
We know that some ASC members are facing increasing constraints on the ability to engage with professional opportunities, so the 2020 conference is offered at 2017 prices (not adjusted for inflation), with an uncatered option also on offer. There are also super-earlybird discounts available for the first round of registrations. We’ve opened registrations as early as possible to also take advantage of end of financial year expenditure.
The ASC Conference is one of the only national opportunities to meet a wonderful bunch of approachable, creative and experienced professionals, keen to share and collaborate.
