2015 CONFERENCE THEMES
1. Engaging Society: Science has an important role to play in society and we want to look at how science engages various sectors of society, from citizen science, media, policy, education and stakeholder engagement to public outreach.
2. Sharing Knowledge: How are we sharing information and/or resources across and between researchers and practitioners, scientists, citizen scientists, media and the general public, and how might we be able to improve these processes?
