We are delighted that the PCST Conference will be hosted in Aberdeen, Scotland, UK from 26 - 28 May 2020

Aberdeen has a rich history of scientific innovation and science communication, from the city's Music Hall which was built for a meeting of the British Association for the Advancement of Science over 150 years ago, to the present day where the University of Aberdeen focuses on world-leading research and engagement.  We are looking forward to welcoming people from near and far to reflect and look to the future of science communication at PCST 2020.

We also want to encourage people to explore our city and participate and experience some of the science communication come alive at the annual May Festival which will take place after the PCST conference.

Known as the Granite City for its sparkling buildings and elegant architecture, Aberdeen has one of Scotland’s most enchanting skylines, while the City’s Old Town, where the University of Aberdeen is located has a magical air of time gone by. The ‘Gateway to the Scottish Highlands’ is even more unique thanks to the treasures on its doorstep.  The Grampian Mountains dominate the skyline to the west whilst miles of unspoiled and often dramatic coastline frame the area in the east, interspersed with picturesque fishing villages and dramatic cliff top scenery waiting to be explored.

Aberdeen is a thriving centre for international business with a social scene to match.  A range of first-class restaurants and a vibrant nightlife combined with a thriving cultural calendar and shops galore all help make Scotland’s third largest city a modern and lively destination that’s well worth a visit.
