The George Washington University To Host ScienceWriters 2018
October 1, 2018

The George Washington University (GW) is set to host ScienceWriters 2018, a joint meeting of the National Association of Science Writers and the Council for the Advancement of Science Writing.

The event includes a mix of professional development workshops, briefings on cutting-edge scientific research, networking opportunities and field trips. The meeting aims to appeal to both new science writers and seasoned professionals.

“This event is a great opportunity to showcase GW’s diverse and growing research enterprise,” said Vice President for Research Robert Miller. “I hope students and faculty will take full advantage of the chance to interact with members of the science writing community.”

The annual event is hosted by a different university in the United States every year. This year attendees will have the opportunity to learn more about the research activities at GW and in Washington, D.C. region. The conference runs from Oct. 12 to 16. Students interested in communicating science can attend the full conference at a reduced cost. The last day to register for the full four-day conference is Oct. 1.

The conference will highlight research completed by many members of the GW faculty, and there will be opportunities for students, faculty and staff to attend portions of the New Horizons in Science briefings on Sunday, Oct. 14 and Monday, Oct. 15 for free.

GW will host a welcome reception in Science and Engineering Hall for conference attendees and invited faculty. In preparation for the reception, the main lobby and lower level lobby of SEH will be closed to the public at noon on Oct. 12. The spaces will likely reopen to the public at approximately 9 p.m.
