As of today we have the Federal and all five state Chief Scientists
confirmed to speak at the Australian Science Communicators National


The Federal and state Chief Scientists are key players in influencing
government policy and promoting science, technology and engineering as a
means to improve the lives of Australians. 


The spotlights will be on the Chief Scientists on Monday 27 February but the
entire three day conference program is packed with top topics and hot


Monday also features two sessions about outcomes of the Inspiring Australia
program; $$$ (a session on philanthropic support for science); science
exhibitions - a 'slow media' in a fast world,; speed mentoring and much
more. For the full day's picture go to


Tuesday and Wednesday, 28-29 February, of the conference also offer more
than enough to ponder. Science communication happens through many means at
multiple levels throughout government, business and the community and the
modes of communication are changing in pace with new media. How to weave
science and the humanities together for engaging new audiences with complex
messages is another fertile area of exploration. 


Go the conference website http://2012conf.asc.asn.au/ for the full program
and registration details. 


Early bird rates end 15 January so be quick for the best deal. After that
date the registration fee is still great value for the strong program,
especially as more details and events will continue to be announced.
