SCIENCE IN PUBLIC – A CONFERENCE HISTORY

In 2012, the organising team for that year decided to change 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 area towards work on dialogue, engagement and interactive communication, and references Jane Gregory and Steven Miller’s Science in Public: Communication, Culture and Credibility (1998).

Further information and links to previous conferences are listed below:

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 in the Science Communication group there. 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
