Dear all,

Am on-passing the item below on behalf of the organisers, FYI:

*media140 Brisbane 2011: Exploring the impact of social technologies in
science communication*
27 April 2011

A one day conference exploring how science communicators engage with complex
and often sensitive public domain issues using social media.

Media140 Frontiers Brisbane will be the first event of its kind to be hosted
in the Brisbane Powerhouse to bring together an international gathering of
speakers from the U.S., Europe and Australia.

This one-day conference will explore the benefits of social technologies on
effective science and risk communication, looking at the challenges of
engaging the public on issues such as climate change, health,
nanotechnology, cloning and other sensitive public interest themes. Through
keynotes, case studies and workshops, we will create a participatory
experience for science communicators to really understand what others are
doing in this domain and help to inform discussion and debate about the
future direction and trends.

There's a great line-up of speakers from the U.S., Europe, New Zealand and
Australia discussing and sharing their insights, experiences and strategies.
