I've been regularly spruiking the upcoming national conference to ASC
members and it was time I waved the flag to the entire asc-list. I hope this
tempts you to have a look at the program on the conference website. The
three day session is packed with diverse topics and issues, skill building
and opportunities to meet movers and shakers, colleagues, friends and
potential mentors.

Australian Science Communicators National Conference

February 27-29, 2012 in Sydney

Communicating science with diverse audiences has never been more important
or difficult. Whatever your need is to make science and technological
subjects accessible, you need the right skills to get your message across.

The Australian Science Communicators National Conference will be the place
to get you started on the right track. Specialists with diverse skills in
communicating science will meet for three days to explore issues, provide
training, problem solve, network and discuss effective ways to engage
Australians with science.

Whether you are a science researcher or teacher, are working for a science
or environmentally related organisation or are free-lance, and whether you
meet people face to face or communicate through various media, this
conference will have something for you.

The conference features a wide range of speakers including the federal and
state Chief Scientists, heads of science agencies, people skilled in
developing computer games for education and using other new media, and those
who interact art with science to put ideas in different contexts. For the
big picture view the full program on http://2012conf.asc.asn.au/. 

The conference will be highly interactive between the audience and
presenters. There will be an emphasis on opportunities to network and
socialise. Delegates will find plenty of opportunities to meet and influence
their colleagues and seek new opportunities for themselves. That's a large
part of what conferences are for - to bring people together to generate a
live buzz of interaction.

If communicating science is relevant to you, come to Sydney in February 2012
and explore the latest science communication has to offer.
