Dear ASC members,


Early bird registrations are still open for the ASC 2016 conference
<http://2016conf.asc.asn.au/> to be held in Brisbane, on March 11.


The conference will feature a plenary-style series to discuss current
issues in science communication, explore the emerging trends in science
communication and discuss what new technologies of communication might be
used in the future.


Topics to be presented include:

   - Understanding and responding to people’s rejection of science
   - The cultural value of science communication
   - The future of science journalism
   - New narratives in Science Communication

The conference will also run during the much anticipated World Science
Festival <http://www.worldsciencefestival.com.au/>, as it debuts for the
first time in Australia. Conference attendees can get discounted tickets to
the popular Breakfast with the Brians
<https://worldsciencefestival.qtix.com.au/event/wsfb_breakfast_brians_16.aspx>
event,
that is scheduled the morning before the conference begins. But be quick!
Tickets for this event are selling fast.


For more information about the conference and to register visit the website
here <http://2016conf.asc.asn.au/>, or check out some of our interviews
with the speakers <http://www.asc.asn.au/> for a taste-test of the
plenaries.


Have a great week,

Emma and Tara
