Conference Date: October 26-30, 2017

Registration Deadline: Thursday, October 12

Location: Marriott Marquis

Brief Description:

NASW members and non-members alike are welcome and encouraged to attend WCSJ2017. The 10th World Conference of Science Journalists will bring together 1,200–1,400 professionals dedicated to engaging, incisive, accurate, and high-quality science journalism. Anyone who writes, edits, or produces science news, information, or commentary for the public; teaches science journalism is invited to register.

WCSJ2017 will provide the networking, training, professional development, and exposure to world-class science and technology essential to equip and sustain a worldwide community, ensuring that news about science is intelligently conveyed to a global public no matter what barriers of culture, language, education, and politics stand in the way. A special emphasis of the conference will be building science journalism capacity in Latin America.

Many of the sessions will focus on questions of craft and science communication issues that should be useful to all science writers. Because this meeting is international, and science information is disseminated in ways that vary from country to country, there may be fewer sessions targeted primarily at U.S. PIOs than are offered at NASW/CASW Science Writers meetings.
