SiP conference history

Following the highly successful conference and PCST summer school held in July 2015 at UWE’s Science Communication Unit, we are very pleased to announce that Science in Public 2016 will be hosted by the University of Kent’s Centre for the History of the Sciences.

We look forward to seeing you there!


SCIENCE IN PUBLIC – A POTTED 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 practitioners working across the area from the UK and worldwide.

In 2012, we changed the name of the conference from ‘Science and the Public’ to ‘Science in Public’ after requests from delegates for many years. This reflects a general transition towards ideas about dialogue, engagement and interactive communication about science, and references Jane Gregory and Steven Miller’s Science in Public: Communication, Culture and Credibility (1998).

In 2015, the conference was hosted by the Science Communication Unit, University of the West of England, Bristol. You can find more details, including a full programme, here.
