7 May 2019

The call for proposals for PCST 2020 is now open. But why should you submit? Here are 10 reasons to get you started…

You’ll have seen that PCST has now launched a call for papers for the PCST 2020 conference, to be held in Aberdeen in May 2020. Why should you submit and come along? Here are 10 reasons – let us know any others you can think of on our Facebook page.

  1. To meet science communicators and researchers from across the globe.
  2. To show off about your brilliant projects and ideas!
  3. Aberdeen is a fantastic city with a rich history of scientific innovation.
  4. To meet those starting out in science communication and those who have played major roles in establishing this incredible community.
  5. To set up new and diverse collaborations.
  6. To get feedback on your work and engage with people working in similar ways.
  7. Because PCST is one of the few places that practitioners, students and researchers of science communication rub shoulders.
  8. To hear exciting keynote speakers (not announced yet, but we’re confident they will be).
  9. To reflect on the highly topical themes of Time, Technology and Transformation.
  10. Um…Scottish cuisine?

We’re sure we’re missing a few out – let us know what we’ve forgotten via social media! And don’t forget to think about formats and contact your colleagues in plenty of time for the final deadline of 12 October 2019.
