SiP conference history

CURRENT AND FUTURE PLANS:

There will not be a Science in Public conference during the summer of 2014: instead we are organising a one day workshop on ‘Environments in Public‘ to be held at the University of East Anglia this November.

We are very happy to announce that in 2015 Science in Public will be hosted by the Science Communication Unit at the University of the West of England.                     In 2016 the conference will be travelling onwards to the University of Kent’s Centre for the History of the Sciences.

SCIENCE IN PUBLIC – A CONFERENCE HISTORY

The first Science and the Public conference was held in 2006 at Imperial College London (programme).  It was organised by Alice Bell and Sarah Davies, then PhD students at Imperial’s Science Communication group. It has since been hosted at universities throughout the UK, and has grown from a small postgraduate event into a full conference, attended by academics and practioners working across the area from the UK and beyond.

In 2012, the organising team changed the name of the conference from ‘Science and the Public’ to ‘Science in Public’ after requests from delegates for many years. This reflects changes in the field towards work on dialogue, engagement and interactive communication, and references Jane Gregory and Steven Miller’s Science in Public: Communication, Culture and Credibility (1998).

Last year, the conference was hosted by Nottingham University’s Making Science Public research programme. The full conference proceedings have now been published online.
