Science Writers and Communicators of Canada Annual Conference

Event Date: 
May 4, 2024 to May 7, 2024

The 2024 annual conference of the Science Writers & Communicators of Canada (SWCC; previously the Canadian Science Writers' Association), will take place May 4-7 in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. The theme is "Expanding Horizons."

Three Conference Streams

Stream 1: Technology Meets Communication

What can we learn from futurists, neuroscientists, philosophers, and AI experts about the implications of technology on the world, and the stories we tell about it?

Stream 2: Widening the Circle

What happens when we consider diverse perspectives and priorities relating to science communication in Turtle Island? What about the way we do science and tell stories about science needs to change? How does diversity lead to wholeness?

Stream 3: Beyond Disciplines

How do interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary work, community work, and engaged scholarship challenge the very structures of our institutions? Why is that important? What can we learn when we blur the edges between disciplines—in journalism, in educational institutions, in policy?
