Science, Stories and Society…the Soul of Science Communication

PCST Conferences take place every two years, bringing together practitioners, educators and researchers in the diverse and growing field of science communication. They include elements of academic and professional conferences, including presentation of research, reflections on practice, and practical workshops and demonstrations. They attract participation typically from more than 50 countries in all continents and have been hosted most recently in Turkey, Brazil, Italy and India. Each hosting has helped boost interest in PCST in the relevant city, region or country as well as strengthening international networking.
