Watch This Space – ScienceWriters 2012!

UPDATED – Dec. 19, 2011 to reflect policy on admission to both conferences. (see below)

SCONCs and friends: We’re next in line to host ScienceWriters 2012, a joint session combining the annual meeting of the National Association of Science Writers and the 50th annual New Horizons Briefing hosted by the Council for the Advancement of Science Writing.

OCTOBER 26-30, 2012, like the logo says. ScienceWriters2012

It’s three days of meetings and two days of tours, with social events every night. You’ll get to hang with some of the leading lights of science writing from mainstream media to freelancers, bloggers, authors and students — a smart, fun, even slightly famous bunch.

The headquarters will be the downtown Marriott in Raleigh and the convention center, but we’ll be checking out RTP and RTI, the university campuses and a few other science destinations. (We actually have too much to offer!)

Attendance in the NASW workshops on Saturday is limited to credentialled members of the NASW, but it’s cheap and easy to join:

Attendance in the New Horizons briefing on scientific topics Sunday and Monday is NOT limited to NASW members. Watch this blog for registration details when they are available.
