Dear ASCers,

Want to come to grips with social networking  technology and learn how it
will change your working life as a communicator?

Then come to the ASC National Conference to be held in Canberra from Sunday
evening, 22 November till Wednesday 25 November 2009 where social networking
will be a major overall theme. And you will be encouraged to jump in and get
involved right at the start. As part of your registration, you will gain
access to an on-line forum, to begin a discussion of the issues before the
conference-and keep the ball rolling long after the conference is over.

But that's not the only attraction. The conference will also include a
one-day symposium entitled Hot Air: Communicating the science of climate
change with the general public, as well as papers on the latest research in
the field of science communication, plus material on the place of the arts
in communicating science.

Of course, the main attraction will be meeting and talking with other
communicators, and there will be plenty of opportunity to do so during the
conference proper and at the associated social events.

Put the dates in your diary, and we'll provide details of costs in a week or
two (less than $500 for ASC members), and a more detailed program by early

Keep checking this list and the revamped ASC website for the latest
