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?

Registration fees:

Member Registration: $625

Non-member Registration: $775

Student Registration: $400

Breakfasts, lunches and snacks are provided as part of the conference fee. Also included in the conference fee is an opening reception on May 4th where food is available.

Pre and post conference events, such as the Plain Language Workshop, the CLS + VIDO Tour and the Wanuskewin Heritage Park Tour, are not included in the conference ticket price. If you would like to attend these events, you can add them during registration at an additional cost.

In typical SWCC tradition, there will be a "Dine-Around" on Sunday night. If you are interested in the "Dine-Around" we will have a sign-up available at the registration table during the conference.
