So far, we can confirm there will be:
Chiefly scientists (both Federal and State)

Professional development sessions on communication planning, writing for the media, and playing the consultancy game

Speed mentoring – special opportunities for people to grill seasoned professionals (sounds like a cooking class…)

Science communication research stories from the academy and beyond

Science, art and the many things that happen when they play together

A serious look at the evolving and maturing face of social media and science communication

Science, politics, and some insight from the world of science lobbyists
