Science communication is an active field of research and some of the latest results will be presented at ASC2012. Read about some of the highlights among the nearly 30 research papers presented at the conference.
Science is all about accuracy, trying to clearly describe the rules by which nature plays. Art is quite the opposite. Leaving room for interpretation and deliberately challenging rules and conventions. You may be surprised to read here, that the two disciplines get along quite well – of course another topic to be discussed at ASC2012.
Have you created engaging visuals to communicate science?
You are invited to share your work in the ASC2012 Science-as-Art Exhibition!
Science can be beautiful and the visualisation of science is a universal and ancient means of communication and engagement.
The Science-As-Art exhibition at the ASC2012 conference will showcase examples of science visualisation created by scientists, science-artists and science communicators right across Australia.
This is an exhibition for anyone interested in science and communicating science visually.
SUBMISSIONS CLOSE: 20 Feb 2012
Prizes will be awarded.
It will feature a feast of workshops, discussions, presentations, networking events, good time entertainment and the opportunity to mingle with some of the best kinds of people in the entire universe.
