Spice up your #Ecsite2018 session

Artist Sergey Kischenko was one of the 2016 beneficiaries from the "fresh ideas" scheme (c) Sergey Kischenko & RESANITA

Participants of the Ecsite Annual Conference love new perspectives, fresh ideas and different horizons. In event feedback received over the past few years, attendees have been consistently asking to hear more speakers from outside of the science centre and museum field.

To help attract new faces, Ecsite is offering 12 free one-day passes to speakers who can convince the Annual Conference Programme Committee (ACPC) that they will contribute novel topics, angles or session formats.

This could be your chance to finally bring in the mind-opening speaker you had always wanted to see at the conference - or attend it for free if you're one of the brilliant minds, critical friends or super-talented experts we had been missing.

Now that sessions have been selected for the 2018 edition, this could be the opportunity to spice up your session with an outside perspective.

Get your new speaker to apply by 27 January.

 

HOW CAN MY SPEAKER APPLY FOR A FREE ONE-DAY PASS?

Get them to fill in this short application form. Besides contacts details, we only ask them a short statement (max. 300 words) explaining how they heard of this opportunity, why they would love to speak at the 2018 Ecsite Annual Conference and how the ideas / perspectives / session formats they want to share would inspire science communication professionals.

HOW WILL APPLICATIONS BE REVIEWED?

The ACPC will be rating the received applications on the following criteria:

  • Novelty of the suggested topic / angle / session format
  • Overall balance of professional horizons, geographic origins, themes and genders

WHAT DOES THE FREE ONE-DAY REGISTRATION INCLUDE?

The free one-day registration includes:

  • Access to all sessions on one of the main conference's three days (6-8 June 2018)
  • Coffee breaks and lunches
  • On Thursday 7 June, access to the Gala Ball and on Friday 8 June, access to the Nocturne (unfortunately not to the Farewell Party on Saturday 9 June as it needs to be booked as a separate event by all participants)
