ComSciCon is a series of workshops focused on enhancing communication skills and fostering an inclusive community that can effectively communicate scientific information to both academic and non-academic audiences. Created in 2013 by graduate students at Harvard University and MIT, over 500 graduate students have now benefited from learning the skills needed to communicate the often complex concepts within science, engineering and other technical fields to reach wider and more diverse audiences. ComSciCon has now come to Canada to empower the next generation of leaders in STEM fields across the country.
ComSciCon second bilingual event in Canada (ComSciCon-CAN) will be held May 26th-28th in Ottawa.
The 1st ComSciCon dedicated to French speakers (ComSciCon-QC) will take place in Montréal on June 12-13th. The conference is completely free of charge for selected attendees (travel, lodging, and food will be provided).
The application deadline is 21 January 2020 and the application form is available here: https://comscicon.com/comscicon-can-2020-application
