The 30th edition of the Ecsite Conference is hosted by Experimentarium and will be held inside the science centre itself, the former home of the Tuborg Brewery. Experimentarium re-opened its doors to the public with 18 brand new exhibitions in January 2017, all exploring new boundaries for science communication.
The conference combines two days of in-depth workshops and three days of 100+ parallel sessions. Writer, artist and curator Margaret Wertheim & slime mould researcher Audrey Dussutour will be delivering this year's keynote speeches.
This year's theme is “Pushing Boundaries”. As the world around us and we ourselves change, boundaries need to be constantly negotiated and redefined. Exploring, challenging and shaping boundaries is crucial if we want to grow and develop as a sector, organisation or individual. It is by pushing our own boundaries for science communication that we ourselves become inspired to walk down new and creative paths. The Ecsite conference celebrates its 30th edition and we invite the science engagement community to build on three decades of science communication and look ahead, pushing the boundaries of our field and practices.
Enjoy a unique balance of large crowds and friendly family atmosphere, broad thematic scope and focussed state of the art sessions, international perspectives and European touch, peer collaboration and friendly criticism.
Online registration is open: don’t miss the early bird rate, ending on 17 April.
