Canadian Association of Science Centres Annual Conference
Science is definitely a field where daring can be given free reign. Many crazy and revolutionary ideas have crystallized into real projects thanks to bold creators who believed in their ideas. Science museums and similar organisations can also take pride in taking a bold approach in their operations, programming and even funding. Come exercise your creativity and see what your peers are doing. The CASC annual conference includes a pre-conference behind-the scenes tour, an inspiring keynote speaker, two days of concurrent sessions and workshops, plus a tradeshow and our National Awards Gala. All events are geared towards facilitating practical innovations in the development, delivery, and support of science engagement activities. Individuals from science centres, museums, nature centres, planetariums, outreach organisations and schools are all welcome to join us.

Governing the uncertainty:The contribution of social sciences to governance of risks in environmental health
Risks in environmental health and workplace safety are complex. Albeit characterised by multiple uncertainties, their identification, assessment and management have been subject to a wave of "scientisation" characteristic of our modern societies. Quantitative approaches and empirical research destined to characterise, prevent and mitigate risks have mobilised a wide range of scientific disciplines. Nonetheless, the limits of quantitative approaches remain important. Hence, there is ample room for more qualitative approaches, along with methods that take into consideration the role of socio-technical systems in the production of risks, their identification and control

The conference is the occasion to exchange, to network and to learn about the state-of-the-art of science events, about future projects, about best experiences.

Science in Society: Dialogues and Scientific Responsibility
Paris, November 24-25, 2008
The objective of the conference is to discuss the place science holds within our European society. The growing distrust citizens show towards new and potential scientific and technological advances and applications, and youth's decreasing interest for scientific studies and careers, are the symptoms of changes we need to understand. The Conference will focus on analysing the relationship between stakeholders and partners of the scientific community in the "knowledge society" that Europe is trying to build. The conference will examine the possible erosion of the research landscape due to globalisation. This should ultimately lead to questions about scientific responsibility. Finally, ‘best practices' will be identified.

Communicating the beauty of Science
Edinburgh (Scotland). March 25-30, 2008.
Organised by the British Council and directed by Quentin Cooper, the event is closely linked to the Edinburgh Science Festival and combines workshops, practical exercises, interactive sessions and talks with highlights from the Festival programme. Sessions will be intensely interactive and built on exchanges of ideas, brainstorming, and comparisons of different global practices. The scope will range from broad issues, such as how to make science appeal to those who don't find it attractive, to guidance on being interviewed, and the detailed anatomy of individual science stories.
Leading scientists, journalists and science communicators will take part in the sessions, but there will also be an emphasis on the expertise and experience brought by the participants. The programme is flexible enough both to take on their specific interests and concerns and to allow time to explore Edinburgh and the Science Festival.

European Forum On Science Journalism
How to strengthen science coverage in the European press? How to convince editors to run science stories? How to assess the trustworthiness of scientific research? How to explain science in an understandable fashion? How to stimulate public interest in science news? These are among the key questions addressed at the first European Forum on Science Journalism, that took place in the Universitat Pomepu Fabra (Barcelona) on December 3-4, 2007.
Leading science journalists and editors of national newspapers and specialised science publications from across Europe and the world met in Barcelona to discuss the challenges in reporting on science, the impact of new technologies on the profession and importance of linking science to society and everyday life together with leading scientists and top science communication professionals from across Europe, the US, Canada, China and Australia.
This was the last of the three major events organised by the European Commission to mark the launch of FP7 (after the Conference for Information Multipliers and Today is the Future). To feed the debate, four European reports was specifically commissioned by Directorate-General for Research:
- Three surveys on science in the media in Europe, as perceived by European citizens (Eurobarometer), researchers, and journalists & editors.
- A report and handbook on EU-wide training opportunities for science journalists.
