PCST 2016 is organized by the PCST International Network and hosted by Hacettepe University, Ankara.

Issues and questions associated with this main theme are discussed on the conference web site.

Proposals are also invited on the following themes:

  • Trends in public communication of science and technology
  • Science communication policies
  • Evaluating public communication of science and technology
  • Ethics and aesthetics of science communication

Proposals should include a summary description (maximum 300 words) of the proposed paper or session and the conference theme or themes with which the proposal is associated.

It is not necessary to pay the conference fee at the time of submission of the abstracts for proposals. However, papers will only be confirmed in the programme when the speakers have registered for the conference and paid the fee. The presenting author will be required to make the payment by a date that will be given in the notification of acceptance.

The official language of the conference is English: all the proposals should be submitted in English. The presentations will also be in English. Proposals must be submitted here up to 12 noon (GMT) on 1 September 2015.
