International Public Science Events Conference, Day One

Pre-registration required
Wednesday, 12 February 2014: 8:00 AM-5:00 PM
Grand Ballroom D North (Hyatt Regency Chicago)
Organized by the Science Festival Alliance Fee: $50 Science festivals are proliferating rapidly across the globe, and growing in scope and impact in the communities where they are already taking place. Science cafes are now so prevalent that it is often no longer necessary to explain what they are to other professionals, and local cafes continue to find new ways to reach new audiences. Other events–often blending dialogue, storytelling, and celebration (or defying categorization altogether)–are emerging in unique communities and adapting to cultural contexts in your own backyard and throughout the world. Join professionals involved in public science events from diverse fields and across institutional silos for the third International Public Science Events Conference (IPSEC), and add your voice to the conversation about how we make our events instructive, meaningful, entertaining, and culturally relevant.
