kent1The annual Science in Public (SiP2016) conference will take place on 13-15 July 2016 at the University of Kent, Canterbury, UK. This year’s theme is Science in Public: Past, Present and Future. The discussion topics will consider different time periods of the science and public relationship, such as the historical and contemporary approaches to science in public. The cross-disciplinary range of papers will cover works on science in mass media and museums; public engagement; popular science; science, publics and policy; science in fictions; and art and cinema.

Although the main call for papers is now closed, the conference invites attendees to submit proposals for the poster session, outlining their research findings, engagement activities, upcoming events, announcements, networks and questions for debate. Abstracts, enquiries and queries should be sent to Rebekah Higgitt.

The SiP2016 conference, supported by the British Society for the History of Science, will offer reduced rates to students, unwaged and freelance attendees.
