The University of Aberdeen is gearing up to host more than 650 delegates at this year’s Public Communication of Science and Technology (PCST) conference.
Attendees from more than 60 countries across the globe will log on to attend the virtual event next week which was originally due to take place in Aberdeen last year.
The theme of the conference is Time, Technology and Transformation and will offer those who attend the opportunity to share their interest in science communications and enable new connections between practitioners and researchers and across national and cultural boundaries.
The event will be chaired by University of Aberdeen Chair in Chemistry Professor Marcel Jaspars and Dr Heather Doran, Public Engagement Manager at the University of Dundee and is supported by CPD Services in R&I.
The conference, which should have taken place last May at TECA, has had to be moved completely online due to Covid-19, however the organising committee have worked extensively over the past year to ensure the programme is as jampacked and as engaging as ever – with 359 presentations scheduled over four days.
Delegates will still get the chance to visit Aberdeen, as the 2025 conference will take place in the city.
24 - 27 May 2021
