Bring that inspiring speaker to your conference session!

Fresh ideas mean free registration at #Ecsite2016

Your session needs extra speakers? Bring new people and fresh ideas to the conference and get them in for free!

After a first successful round, Ecsite is offering a second batch of free one-day registrations to speakers bringing novel perspectives to its 2016 annual conference .

To be eligible, speakers need:

  • To bring new ideas or angles, if possible from outside the field of science engagement
  • To be (or become) part of an accepted session proposal
  • Not to have attended an Ecsite conference in the past
  • Not to work for an Ecsite member (already entitled to a generous discount).

How do I apply for a free one-day registration?

Send a short application by the end of 7 February 2016 to Julie Becker, Communications and Events Manager, stating:

  • Your contact details: name, email, phone number, postal address
  • Your current occupation / job title and organisation
  • The title(s) of the session proposal(s) you are involved in
  • A short statement (max. 300 words) explaining how you heard of this opportunity, why you would love to speak at the 2016 Ecsite Annual Conference and how the ideas / perspectives / session formats you want to share would inspire science communication professionals

How will applications be reviewed?

The ACPC (Annual Conference Programme Committee) will be rating the received applications on the following criteria:

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

What will my free one-day registration include?

The free one-day registration includes:

  • Access to all sessions on one of the main conference's three days (9-11 June 2016)
  • Coffee breaks and lunches
  • On Thursday 9 June, access to the Gala Ball and on Friday 10 June, access to the Nocturne (unfortunately not to the Farewell Party on Saturday 11 June as it needs to be booked as a separate event by all participants)
