ScienceWriters: Be part of ScienceOnline

January 11, 2011

Tags: science, live-blogging, NASW

From NASW: You can participate free in the fifth annual Science Online meeting (#SciO11) this week, thanks to the National Association of Science Writers. Livestreamed topics include history of science as a writing tool, using fiction to explain science, communicating science with humor, and many others. Find the livestream and archive here beginning Saturday, Jan 15: http://scienceonline2011.com/watch /

Space constraints mean only 300 digerati will be gathering in North Carolina's Research Triangle in person, but NASW has donated $10,000 of our Authors Coalition funds to underwriting free livestreaming of several of the Saturday and Sunday sessions. The sessions will also be archived for later viewing, also free.

The sessions to be livestreamed will take place on Saturday and Sunday, Jan.15 and 16, 2011. Livestreaming will be from the sessions in ROOMS B AND C **ONLY** --see the SciO11 program for times and subjects: http://scio11.wikispaces.com/Program

The meeting runs from Thursday night through Sunday afternoon EST (January 13-16, 2011). In addition to the Saturday and Sunday livestreaming, there will be many chances to catch up on other activities for example the Friday lab tours and workshop sessions, plus the weekend sessions that will not be livestreamed. That's because lots of us will be live-blogging events. There's also a very active Twitter feed with the hashtag #scio11.

We hope you'll join us, virtually.
