Join us for the Australian Science Communicators Tenth National Conference, ASC2018 in Sydney. This is the premier networking, knowledge forming professional development and interactive event for those making science, technology and innovation accessible, delivering industry-shaping conferences since 1996.

The conference is being held over four full days at the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney, Monday 12 through Wednesday 14 for the main conference, and Thursday 15th November for a day of post-conference workshops including a evening networking event on the Tuesday. There will be activities on the Sunday for those who arrive in Sydney ahead of the Monday conference start including a range of local attraction offers for delegates so plan to arrive early if you can.

Official start time will be confirmed this week.

The theme for ASC2018 is “Elevate Collaboration Impact” and the program committee will be particularly interested in session proposals, papers, case studies and posters that speak to this theme. How is your #scicomm enabling or contributing to collaboration impact?

Similar to previous conferences the program will include a mix of science communication research and theory as well as case studies and real life stories from practitioners.

Space has been included in the draft schedule for research, poster and case study presentations as well as professional development workshops and plenary sessions.

We may also have a curated science art exhibit. This has yet to be confirmed.

As always the schedule is subject to change depending on the mix of submissions received across the various categories.

The full schedule and updates as they come online are available at the official conference website: http://2018conf.asc.asn.au/

A dedicated area has been reserved for trade exhibitors and poster displays.

#ASC2018 will be held in the heart of Sydney City at the Powerhouse Museum. The street address is 500 Harris Street, Ultimo NSW 2007. Additional location information is available from here.
