Interested in science communication? This conference might spark your interest.




Science communicators of all stripes: reporters, editors, freelancers, PIOs, publishers, museum staffers, bloggers, multimedia producers, scientists and students.


The South Central States (Texas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Louisiana) are located where scientific innovation, fragile biomes, and the dynamic energy, biotech, and biomedical industries all meet political conservatism. The issues facing a science communicator in the region couldn’t be more diverse or important.

Despite their unique geographic and political position, the science communicators in the region are only loosely connected to each other, if at all. We recognize the power of strong connections among science communicators, not just for professional development, but for moral support in what may be a more challenging era for science than in the past.


Keynote by David Biello, Science Curator of the TED Conferences

Breakout sessions to facilitate networking and collaboration among previously-disparate science communicators.

The Art of Science Slideshow: Do you have a stunning visual that illustrates one of your science stories?
