ScienceOnline2011 is the fifth annual international meeting on Science and the Web. The Research Triangle Park (RTP) will once again host scientists, students, educators, physicians, journalists, librarians, bloggers, programmers and others interested in the way the World Wide Web is changing the way science is communicated, taught and done.
2010 has been an exciting year in science, in the developments of the Web, and in the media (including science journalism). The past year’s events, coupled with the growing reputation of the conference around the world, has expanded conference participation this year as 500 participants are expected to convene over the three full days of exciting discussions, conversations and events.
The Research Triangle Foundation of NC was excited to host the Keynote Reception to kickoff the ScienceOnline 2011 conference at the RTP Headquarters last night. The Keynote Speaker was Robert Krulwich with NPR, who delivered an inspiring discussion around his life’s work communicating science on the radio. Stay tuned to the RTP blog and the Science in the Triangle website to view video content and interviews with speakers and attendees post-conference.
