Porto Conference

The 2017 Ecsite Annual Conference will draw up to 1,100 science communicators from over 45 countries to Porto, Portugal.

In its 28th edition, the conference will be hosted by two Portuguese partners Natural History and Science Museum of the University of Porto (MHNC-UP) and Ciência Viva. This year's theme is “Life Everywhere”, an invitation "to celebrate life, celebrate the extraordinary diversity of forms evolving in our planet for millions of years, celebrate our existence".

Don't miss the more than 90 sessions delivered by over 400 speakers, on topics such as science communication in the post-truth era, learning ecosystems or designing for emotions.

The three-day event will run 15-17 June 2017 and showcase the latest research and developments in public engagement with science through dynamic sessions, debates, workshops and a trade show called the Business Bistro.
