When we look around, science communication is everywhere. You see it in
museums, in television documentaries, in newspapers, on the radio, in
science magazines, social media and the growth in citizen science. In
Australia, we have a whole week devoted to science outreach. But how do we
know whether any given effort in communicating science among public
audiences is effective? And by which aims and objectives are those efforts

We are interested in authors who want to share their research insights to
improve science communication practice and evaluation. We invite
accomplished researchers, academics, and professionals as well as students
and early career professionals to submit abstracts for consideration for
the conference research stream. These might explore the following suggested
topics (this is not an exhaustive list):
• Studies investigating the effectiveness of science communication
practices: systematic examination of strategies and impacts
• Critical and/or innovative approaches to science communication evaluation
and research
• Applying science communication research and evaluation to practice
• Research from different fields that informs or sheds a different light on
science communication practices
• Building a theoretical basis for science communication

In an abstract of not more than 300 words, please provide an overview of
the paper including the main argument or contribution, an indication of the
data , methods/approaches and/or insights.

The papers will be delivered as oral presentations in the academic research
stream. Each paper will have 15 minutes for delivery (10-12 minutes oral
presentation followed by 3-5 minute Q&A). Submissions will be peer
reviewed. Everyone who submits a proposal will be sent an email in
early-October 2018 to advise them if their proposal has been accepted or
