Help us publicise the National Conferenc in Canberra

Dear ASCers,

Help us publicise the ASC National Conference by posting the following on any mailing list to which you or your organisation belong:

Climate change, pandemics, drought, bushfires, tsunamis, hunger, poverty—we need to be able to communicate science to have any chance of beating them.

Find out how, at the Australian Science Communicators (ASC) National Conference at the Australian National University in Canberra from 7-10 February.

Hear about the new National Science Communication Strategy, and listen to what the Australian Government and our research leaders have to say. Take part in the third Hot Air Symposium on Communicating Climate Change. Expose yourself to the latest research in science communication. Explore social media and how it can be applied in science communication. Find out how the arts is being used to put science across.

Hear from Will Steffen, director of ANU’s Climate Change Institute recently returned from the Copenhagen conference; Susannah Eliott, CEO of the Australian Science Media Centre; Wilson da Silva, editor of Cosmos; Anna-Maria Arabia, executive director of FASTS; eminent cancer researcher, David Vaux; and Sydney Morning Herald science writer, Deb Smith.

Be interactive! Join the conference Ning. Delegates will receive details of how to do this in the next week.
