veski supports 5th World Conference for Science Journalists

6 February

veski is helping journalists and science communicators from around the world meet in Melbourne, Australia from the 16th to 20th April 2007 to discuss the big issues facing science journalism.

Representatives from Africa, Asia, Europe and the Americas will build their network of contacts so they can report effectively on science and science issues in the 21st Century.

Highlights of the conference include:

  • Science: climate change, emerging diseases, quantum computing, polar science, and the future of nuclear energy.
  • Issues: fraud, balance, biasing of information and the challenges of reporting from within and outside emerging economies.
  • Workshops: reporting on clinical trials, dealing with risk, information management in a crisis, when to trust peer review, editing and creating journalism associations.

Participants include science editors from the Economist, Financial Times, Asahi Shimbun, the editors-in-chief of Nature and of Scientific American, senior reporters from BBC TV, radio and World Service, and some 50 journalists from developing and emerging countries.

The 5th World Conference of Science Journalists is an initiative of the World Federation of Science Journalists and the Australian Science Communicators.
