They have two poster sessions. Anyone hear a call for posters? Probably not. 

Silos!

Indeed Anthony, science communication isn’t a field but a collection of specializations, each focusing on different aspects of communicating science without ever really acknowledging (or even recognizing) the other’s existence. One of our early efforts in SCI was to create a network of these practitioners, but this effort got supplanted by OSI in early 2015. As I’ve argued in the last several conference presentations I’ve made, we see much the same thing with the open movement  (itself a subset of science communication), with different fiefdoms (open access, open data, open science, open government, open source, OER) creating definitions and policies (and responding to stakeholders and perspectives) that aren’t connected to the greater whole.

You can see the speakers David. I am an information scientist these days and it always amazes me how information science is so cut off from science policy - these people. Publishers and librarians do not interact with these people either,

You have to register to see the agenda, which is mostly panels of academics with a scattering of agency outreach people. No hint of publishing. There are some interaction sessions where OA and OS might be introduced.

Abstract: "On July 27-28, 2021, SciPEP will convene a virtual conference exploring the unique characteristics of the relationship between the public and basic research, drawing from the experience and expertise of our colleagues in the science and science communication communities. Communicating the Future: Engaging the Public in Basic Science will explore why the public and basic science should be connected and what current communication and engagement efforts are taking place, including the challenges and opportunities in this work. Ultimately, we intend to identify how scientists and professionals can work to engage the public with basic research as effectively as possible."



Sponsor is US DOE's Office of Science (SC), perhaps the world's biggest funder of basic physical science research. (Disclosure: for ten years I was Senior Consultant for Innovation with SC's Office of Scientific and Technical Information and did research on this very topic.)

 

Looks like the kickoff conference for a new initiative, so maybe worth registering and at least attending a bit. (The speakers list looks rather long.) SC is a very big gun.

 

SciPEP is the Science Public Engagement Partnership, which looks to be new.
