The 10th annual Public Communication of Science and Technology (PCST) international conference is soon upon us, and now is the time for delegates and press to register. Don't miss out on this great opportunity to learn how science communication can contribute to sustainable development, and experience how science communication can be made stronger and more effective.
The PCST conference will also be a great opportunity to network with peers within the science communication field. It is open to anyone interested in science, and a multi-disciplinary approach will characterise the whole conference.Celebrated key speakers
Anja C. Andersen - winner of the prestigious Descartes Prize for Research in 2007 - is widely known as an excellent communicator of science to the public as well as an enthusiastic advocate of women's participation in the natural sciences.
"Science communication is an important part of science. The PCST conference will be a great opportunity to network with key contacts within the science and technology communities, as well as explore the cities of Malmö, Lund and Copenhagen - all prominent cities within academia, research and innovation," Andersen said.
Key seminars at the conference include
- Framing climate change and other controversial science communication topics
- European trends and challenges in science journalism
- Medical messages in the media: reliable information or science for sale?
- Science communication transcending language barriers
- Visualisation in science and public communication
- The public engagement of science and web 2.0
- Evaluating public engagement in science: why, how, and for whom?
The PCST conference takes place in Malmö and Lund in Sweden and Copenhagen in neighbouring Denmark. It will bring together some 400 delegates, including science communicators, researchers, science writers, press officers and librarians, from all over the world. Nearly 300 proposals from all parts of the world have been selected for the final programme and some 70 sessions will be taking place during the course of the week.
There's also an opportunity for delegates to visit Stockholm during the pre-conference on 23-24 June. Learn more about how Nobel Prize candidates are selected and visit the Nobel Museum.

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.
Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...
Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.
"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...
The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.
Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...
The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...
Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.
Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
