Registrations are NOW OPEN for the 21-23 February 2013 international Symposium which PCST and the Science Communicators Assn of New Zealand are co-hosting in the NZ city of Christchurch.

This international event will coincide with the second anniversary of the major earthquake that struck Christchurch on 22 February 2010.
The city and region are proceeding toward recovery at full pace and a superb high quality of international and NZ speakers has been assembled.

The Symposium 2013 is entitled:  'Disasters - communicating in the crisis and aftermath'.  It will build on the growing body of research that has taken place in the wake of the Christchurch earthquakes and look at disaster planning, communication and resilience issues both in New Zealand and around the world.

The speaking line-up includes Massimiano Bucchi (Università di Trento), Satoko Oki (Tokyo University), Ren Fujun (China Research Institute for Science Popularization - CRISP), Giuseppe Pellegrini (Observa Science in Society), Li Xiuju (CRISP), Mark Quigley (University of Canterbury) and NZ's leading political commentator Colin James.

PCST and the Science Communicators Association of New Zealand look forward to welcoming you to this 2013 Symposium in February.
