...when two back-to-back conferences converge on Pittsburgh. The National Association of Science Writers launches its own annual conference Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 22 and 23. Immediately following, its sister organization, the Council for the Advancement of Science Writing, meets in the same city, with free registration for NASW members and credentialed journalists. NASW's "Science in Society" meeting will feature professional development workshops for journalists, freelancers, and public information officers; CASW briefings feature scientists who describe what's next and newsworthy in science, medicine and technology. Registration opens in mid-July. To proffer ideas for science or scientists you want to see featured at the CASW meeting, contact Paul Raeburn at email@example.com.
