ASC2020 Call for Papers and Sessions<http://asc2020.asc.asn.au/>
We are delighted to invite you to get your thinking caps on! Expressions of interest<http://asc2020.asc.asn.au/call-for-papers/> for inclusion in the ASC2020 conference program due 30 September 2019.  This is also the closing date for Early Bird Registration<http://asc2020.asc.asn.au/register/>.
The theme for ASC2020 is "Priorities, Policies and Publics for human survival" with streams such as environmental and sustainability communication, impact communication, and more.
We are keen to see a wide and varied program for 2020. Here are some examples of possible approaches to the conference themes to get you started:

  *   What is the role of science communication in solving the 'wicked problems' we face (e.g climate change or mass extinctions)
  *   Where does science fit in the current media climate, fake news, etc.?

  *   Is science communication an effective tool for behaviour change?
  *   Communicating in large, multi-stakeholder projects
  *   Science communication for social, environmental, or health impacts

  *   Engaging audiences through new technologies
  *   Transforming relations between science research and communication practice
  *   Widening participation in scientific research with new and diverse audiences
Types of submissions we will accept for ASC2020 include:

  *   Professional Development workshops
  *   Production of sessions and social activities (session and social proposals)
  *   Individual or small group presentations (see suggested formats below)
  *   Research papers
Types of sessions you may be interested in submitting:

  *   Practice insights: speakers describe, demonstrate and/or evaluate specific science communication practices.
  *   Provocations: short talks where speakers present and explore a dilemma in science communication theory or practice.
  *   Work in progress: speakers present work in progress on research or practice, including ideas under development or that have yet to be implemented.
  *   Problems and Solutions clinic: producing a session to allow participants to workshop solutions to the thorny issues they're facing.
  *   Demonstrations: presenting innovative science communication practices with a commentary on their application and effectiveness.
  *   Workshop: allowing participants to actively engage in exploring a project or concept in science communication.
Please don't hesitate to contact program.committee at asc.asn.au<mailto:program.committee at asc.asn.au%22%20%5Ct%20%22_blank> with questions and/or to discuss your ideas for ASC2020. All submissions are due 30 September 2019 online (links for submissions and registration at http://asc2020.asc.asn.au)
We look forward to an incredible array of talent and good things for this Eleventh National Conference of the Australian Science Communicators.
