Sigma Xi's 114th Assembly of Delegates and 2013 Annual Meeting
Science Communication in the 21st Century


Assembly of Delegates: Communicating Science in the 21st Century

The tumblr blogsphere, the twitter sphere, facebook, vlogs, microblogs and other internet realms make us reconsider who is a scientist, how we do science, how we communicate science, how we share it, how we authenticate it, who owns it and how we co-create it. Social media technologies are giving rise to a lively scientific discourse that takes us into unfamiliar space. How we inhabit that space and how it shifts endlessly are intriguing questions that call into account everything we've ever learned about the culture of science. Enter the portal with us at the annual meeting and travel beyond established pathways. Let's engage, as Captain Picard says! 

In order to make the Annual Meeting more accessible and cost-effective, we are holding the meeting virtually.  Members may join chapter delegates and attend the 2013 Meeting online.
