Social inclusion, political engagement, social media, audiences and
their relationship with science communication, science and culture...
These are just some of the themes that will be discussed at the 13th
International Public Communication of Science and Technology Conference
(PCST 2014), on May 5-8 in Salvador, Bahia (Brazil). 

The preliminary programme is now available online. 

Four plenaries will get the discussion started, and the dialogue will
continue in 14 parallel sessions held during the rest of the conference.

Some of the world's top experts in science communication will be
participating in these events. Aiming to bring different approaches and
perspectives to the table, these experts come from eight different
countries across the Americas, Africa, Europe, and Asia. 

The opening plenaries will discuss the relationship between science and
society in different contexts: from low-income communities in Colombia,
to indigenous groups in the Amazon, to the Brazilian Carnival, to Thai
theatre, to South African groups working for equality and human capital
development in science.

This is the first time the PCST Conference - one of the main
international fora on science communication - will be held in Latin
America. The theme for this year's conference is "Science communication
for social inclusion and public engagement." 

The deadline for sending proposals is closed.
