Planning SfP Convention 2018 in Lisbon

After the March for Science in 2017 the question was whether we should have another march this year. Our impression was that the science fair that followed the march was actually more successful than the march itself. So we think it would be more interesting, to have a convention rather than another march!

At the convention we want to bring the public audience together with scientists, science communicators and advocats from across Portugal. We hope that this contributes to our mission to convey the historical and philosophical basics of science, the way academia works (and it’s problems), the expert view on critical topics, and how the sciences can help solve the problems of the 21st century.

We are thinking of two days of short workshops and lectures, and a keynote talk or a debate at the end of each day. Our preferred date would be around June 22nd, hoping that that’s a good time for school classes to show up.

However, these plans might of course change based on the feedback we get from the scene.

@schock says: algorithms should not be “color blind” (equality model that works best for ppl in power). Algorithms should be just (equity model that takes history & intersectionality into account). #datajustice18

Are you active on topics related to #academia? Like #policy, #outreach, #OpenScience, or #publishing? Or do you work between academia and #society? Like #SciComm, #CitizenScience, #MOOC, or scientific adviser for the government? Talk to us! We have open slots for @sfprocur!

This is the skull of a Great Auk. It’s an example of our past sins. Humans were the cause of its extinction. Hopefully we’ve learned to behave a little more responsibly.
