Frankfurt. July 2023. science. communicated!
...why should you join?
In many current debates it is becoming increasingly difficult for science to make its voice heard. In times of so-called „alternative facts“ scientific results are sometimes even deliberately ignored or manipulated to gain advantages.
In the future, this social debate will become increasingly stronger and probably also more aggressive.
Many researchers are consciously withdrawing more and more from this discussion. There are certainly many reasons for this, but it ultimately leads to the debate being conducted less and less with empirically verifiable data and more emotionally charged, irrational and interest-driven in the long term.
The withdrawal of scientists from the discourse is largely due to a lack of time, knowledge and structures.
SCI-COM-E brings together scientists, communicators and experts in adjacent fields – sharing experiences, learning from each other and building a lasting network.
The workshop SCI-COM-E brings together people from all over the world to discuss science communication, share ideas and build lasting networks. Thus the topic of 2023 – NETWORK.
If you are interested in contributing to the meeting, please let us know via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Since we do not want to have a plethora of talks attached to one another, but rather dynamic and meaningful discussion, we most likely can fit in additional contributions.
The individual sessions are currently being planned by the hosts, the preliminary program including time schedule can be downloaded here:
The sessions include:
Science Communication and Artificial Intelligence
Handling media for scientists
Humor in science communication
Science and Art
Communicating errors in science
Creating lasting networks in science communication
SCI-COM-E is supported by the Joachim Herz Foundation.
Thus we will be able to give out scholarships for young science communicators. Travel and accommodation will be supported.
Application for these scholarships is possible for students only and the scholarships are awarded as a lump sum. For more details please refer to the ES3C site.
In addition we can support the event in general and make it cheaper for everyone to attend.
To make things a bit easier on the backend, we use eventbrite for registration.
