National Academy Two-Day Program: The Science of Science Communication

For those grooving on climate communications — and in particular on the science of climate science communications — it doesn’t get much better than this.

The National Academy of Sciences on May 20 and 21 is sponsoring a “Sackler Colloquia” in Washington, D.C., focusing on “research in psychology, decision science, mass communication, risk communication, health communication, political science, sociology, and related fields.”

Registrations, at $150 a pop before May 7, and $250 after that date, are recommended soon.

American University communications professor Matthew Nisbet, one of a number of respected scheduled speakers, outlines the program in a recent posting at He captures the energy and anticipation surrounding the session with these words:

Marshaling the very best of its convening and agenda-setting function, on May 20-21 in Washington, D.C., the Academies will be hosting a prestigious 2-day Sackler Colloquia surveying the state-of-the-art of social science research on communication, connecting this research to its implications for science-related governance, policy and public engagement.

The full agenda for the two-day session is available online here.
