Science Blogging 2008: London

Nature Network, in collaboration with the Royal Institution, is pleased to announce its inaugural science blogging conference:

Science Blogging 2008: London

Science Blogging 2008 conference is a one-day conference which will be held on 30 August at the Royal Institution of Great Britain, 21 Albemarle Street, London, W1S 4BS.

The science blogging community is growing rapidly and reaching larger audiences. At Science Blogging 2008, science bloggers from around the world will have the opportunity to meet and discuss the pressing issues in science, science communication, publishing and education. What can science bloggers do to maximise their impact? Can blogging contribute to scientific research and careers? How can blogs be used to help educate the public about science? What other emerging online tools will play a role in science? Readers and writers of science blogs, those who follow trends in online scientific communication and anyone else interested in learning more about science blogging will benefit from the discussions.

The complete conference programme has been posted on the Science Blogging 2008 group on Nature Network. A conference website is now available, and offers help with securing accommodations, transportation suggestions, and activities planned for the days before the conference. We have posted a list of the attendees, including links to Nature Network profiles and websites/blogs, to this site.

Looking forward to seeing you in London.
