The 10th World Conference of Science Journalists (WCSJ2017) is announcing the Call for Session Proposals.
All science journalists, writers, bloggers, etc. are invited to submit expertly crafted proposals that consider professional development and scientific issues from an international perspective. Make WCSJ2017 in your conference by submitting a session proposal. Proposals are due October 11, 2016.
The conference theme, “Bridging Science and Societies,” reflects the vital role science journalists play in connecting audiences to the science that affects their lives. We are particularly in need of sessions that accomplish one or more of the following:
- Appeal to the common interests of science journalists, no matter their locale or expertise. These could include sessions on the craft of journalism or timely and relevant professional or scientific issues.
- Appeal to a large subset of potential attendees. These could include sessions that focus on skills needed by early career writers or freelance writers.
- Are participatory, engaging conference participants in a way that encourages cross-cultural exchange and mutual understanding.
- Highlight the conference’s regional focus on Latin America and the Caribbean.
Help us make WCSJ2017 your conference by submitting a session proposal. For complete details and instructions, and a link to the online session proposal submission form, go to the conference website.
Proposals are due October 11, 2016.
