a new science writing conference...

...combines two old ones, and the joint program has just been made available. This year, the National Association of Science Writers joins its sister organization, the Council for the Advancement of Science Writing, for a combination conference from October 22 to 26 in here for details about the program, schedule, and hotel registration for both conferences. NASW's focus will be on professional development for science writers, public information officers and freelancers, while CASW will offer briefings by noted scientists on research topics emerging on the horizon. In between, there's lots of networking and some journalism awards. This is the first time NASW has moved its main conference offerings away from the American Association for the Advancement of Science meeting, with which it has long been linked. So if you're a science writer -- or looking for them -- the Pittsburgh conference is the place to be. Regulars: Note that you should register even earlier than usual, as attendance for both conferences is expected to swell.
