Next in the ScienceOnline lineup: Climate, Oceans, Together, and maybe food

May 22, 2013

UPDATE: Bora’s posted a more-thorough roundup of all the activity in the ScienceOnline community.

Registration for ScienceOnline Oceans, a three-day event in Miami in October, is close to full. It’s going to be a really good event focused on ocean science and conservation, and ways to use online communications. There’s still time to register — start here.

And, just announced this week but happening before the Oceans event: ScienceOnline Climate. This will be a two-day event in Washington, D.C. in August to explore the intersection of climate science, communication, and the web.

Like the ScienceOnline TEEN event last month, these events are the ideas of members of the ScienceOnline community. Awesome!

While you’re at it, mark your calendars for the big one, our annual winter gathering here in North Carolina. We’ve renamed it ScienceOnline Together, and it will take place February 26 through March 1, 2014 in Raleigh.

I’ve also been having conversations with various friends and contacts about a ScienceOnline event focused on food — food science, nutrition, sustainable agriculture, food writing or something in between. Contact me if you want to get involved or have ideas for what would make this a fun — and tasty — event.

Pretty exciting, all this. But we need to raise some funds to make sure we can make these events happen, and happen well. Please help by making a donation to our $20.14 from 2,014 donors by the start of 2014 campaign.

Oh, and on the ScienceOnline blog, I’ve asked for your stories about the impact our community has had on your life and/or career. Please share your story with us.

Also, the winners of the first ScienceSeeker Awards have been announced!
