A meeting entitled “Collaborative public engagement with MIST science” is to be held at the University of Leicester on 3 September 2018. Registration for the meeting is open until 10 August 2018.
The conference fee is £35 and it includes refreshments and a two course lunch. There are a limited number of spaces open to PhD students for which the conference fee will be waived; these will go to the first 18 PhD students to register online.
This meeting brings together those in the MIST community who are interested in engaging the public with MIST science. There is much excellent public engagement already being done: workshops and talks will help identify our strengths and weaknesses in this area, and to work out how we can build on those to improve the public engagement across the community.
Jean Lilensten, the instigator of the planeterrella outreach programme, has accepted our invitation to give a presentation on his work and will be joining discussions and workshops throughout the day.
