Participating Nobel Laureates in the pre-conference: Peter Agre (Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2003) och Frank Wilczek (Nobel Prize in Physics 2004). Also Dr. Angela Lindner, Head of communications for one of the Nobel Laureates in Physics 2007, Peter Grünberg, will take part.
The pre-conference at the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences (RSAS) is open for invited press and participants in the main PCST-10 conference (in Öresund 25-27 June), and will give a Swedish perspective to international science communication. The announcement of the Nobel Prize and the Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Memory of Alfred Nobel in early October each year is, arguably, the major news event originating from Sweden.
Consequently, the associated communication process provides an excellent case study and a good opportunity to discuss the "why's and how's" of contemporary science communication.
Venue: Beijersalen, RSAS, Lilla Frescativägen 4A, Stockholm, Sweden (ca. 5 km north of Stockholm C).
Time: Monday 23 June 2008, at 9.00 am-3.00 pm. Coffee and fruits are served from 8.30 am.
Lunch: Journalists who has registered at the LATEST Tuesday 18 June will be served free lunch. Please register to the Press Officer at the RSAS.
Business School, Danish Agency for Science Technology and Innovation, The Kavli Prize and Stiftelsen Riksbankens Jubileumsfond.
Please register and apply for interviews to the Press Officer at the RSAS: Erik Huss, +46 8 673 95 44, +46 70 673 96 50, email@example.com
PCST (Public Communication of Science and Technology) is a global network of communicators, journalists, scientists and other professionals interested in science communication. The network started in France in 1989 and promotes enhanced dialogue between groups engaged in research and communication through support of new ideas and methodology, organization of recurrent world conferences and electronic meeting places.

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.
"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...
In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.
A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...
By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.
"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
COMPAMED has become the leading international marketplace for suppliers of medical manufacturing. The trade fair, which takes place every November and is co-located to MEDICA in Dusseldorf, has been steadily growing over the past years and shows that medical technology remains a rapidly growing market.
In 2016, the joint pavilion by the IVAM Microtechnology Network, the Product Market “High-tech for Medical Devices”, will be located in Hall 8a again and will...
'Ferroelectric' materials can switch between different states of electrical polarization in response to an external electric field. This flexibility means they show promise for many applications, for example in electronic devices and computer memory. Current ferroelectric materials are highly valued for their thermal and chemical stability and rapid electro-mechanical responses, but creating a material that is scalable down to the tiny sizes needed for technologies like silicon-based semiconductors (Si-based CMOS) has proven challenging.
Now, Hiroshi Funakubo and co-workers at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, in collaboration with researchers across Japan, have conducted experiments to...
