If you would like to be a presenter, please find the link to the sign-up form below
Thanks in advance to everyone!
@socrates This looks amazing!
Although it’s not summer in many parts of the world, haha! 😉
Follow-up question for @Cyborgneticz: Is it ok to talk about my professional environment (particle physics / LHC) rather than my research area (science communication)? I’m not a particle physicist, but the subject may be of interest, and I am unfortunately more comfortable talking about that than my own research.
Thanks for organising this!
@RaoOfPhysics If you feel comfortable enough presenting and answering questions then of course!
@Cyborgneticz Thanks! I will think about it a bit. 😃
@socrates I would love to learn more about this! Can anyone watch/present? What sort of topics are people presenting on, do you know?
@nev Yeah, you're welcome if you consider yourself a:
🍍 Formal academic
🍍 Person with expertise you want to share
No formal credentials required
I'm planning to present on medical research ethics in cancer, but the topics will be from many different domains
You should definitely do one!! :D
@bgcarlisle i am thinking about what i might have to offer!
@socrates It would be nice to be able to sign up to a fediverse event without Google surveillance.
@VictorVenema DM the details to me if this is an issue for you
@socrates No, not for me personally, but societally.
@VictorVenema Okay please start a new thread to have this conversation
@socrates My academic readers are on Twitter. On Mastodon I talk about other stuff. So not many relevant people would see the toot if I start.
It was just advice. I think it would help make the meeting a success given the kind of people that hang around here.
@VictorVenema Please begin a new thread to discuss this
