2018 AAAS Annual Meeting: Communicating Science Seminar

15 Feb 2018
9:00 am to 3:30 pm
Austin Convention Center

Science and technology are integral to modern life, and many critical decisions facing society require finding common ground between scientists and members of the public. This annual seminar focuses on different aspects and approaches to communicating science, always emphasizing both theory and practice. The three sessions (more information below) provide a forum for scientists, science communication and public engagement professionals, and social scientists whose research can inform best practices to share their expertise and learn from one another. Participants gain actionable knowledge and join a growing community focused on public engagement with science. The seminar is free but advance registration is required through the main meeting registration site. View videos from previous years' seminars on our website.
