What is: ScienceOnlineVancouver

|

ScienceOnlineVancouver is a monthly discussion series exploring how online communication and social media impact current scientific research and how the general public learns about it. ScienceOnlineVancouver is an ongoing discussion about online science, including science communication and available research tools, not a lecture series where scientists talk about their work. Follow the conversation on Twitter at @ScioVan, hashtag is #SoVan.

It begins Thursday April 19 at 7pm at Science World. Find information about this event at www.ScienceOnlineVancouver.com. Please register and set up a profile so you can get the latest news on upcoming events and see who else is coming.

The format of these monthly meetings was inspired by SoNYC @S_O_NYC, brought to life by Lou Woodley (@LouWoodley, Communities Specialist at Nature.com) and John Timmer (@j_timmer, Science Editor at Ars Technica). With the success of that discussion series, participation in Scio2012, and the 2012 annual meeting of the AAAS in Vancouver, Catherine Anderson, Sarah Chow, and Peter Newbury were inspired to bring it closer to home, leading to the beginning of ScienceOnlineVancouver.

ScienceOnlineVancouver is part of the ScienceOnlineNOW community that includes ScienceOnlineBayArea, @sciobayarea and ScienceOnlineSeattle, @scioSEA [linkto twitter.com/sciosea]. Thanks to Brian Glanz of the Open Science Federation and SciFund Challenge and thanks to Science World.
