Student Poster Contest Deadline Extended!

We have extended the deadline for the STC Academic SIG student poster competition: Monday, April 23, 2012. This is a great opportunity for students to participate in a competition and present virtually at no cost.

  • Undergraduate and graduate students may enter as individuals or as part of a team.
  • Students do not need to be a member of STC to enter or (if they are selected) to present virtually at the Summit.
  • Selected students will present their posters during the STC Summit ’12 , on Monday, 21 May 2012, through Adobe Connect.
  • Submissions will be ranked and the top two posters will be awarded cash prizes.
  • Student members of STC who are selected to present and wish to attend the Summit in person may volunteer to work at the Summit to cover their registration fee.

Submission details can be found on the Student Poster Competition page on this site.

Bakke Webinar Follow-up and Slides

Dr. Ken Baake of Texas Tech University presented "The Rhetoric of Science and How Metaphor Constitutes Knowledge in Science" at our first co-hosted Webinar on 23 February 2012. The presentation had nearly 35 participants with lively participation and questions after the main presentation by Dr. Baake. In attendance were members from both the Academic and SciCom SIGs which included both industry and academic professionals. Thanks very much to Dr. Baake, members of the Academic and SciCom SIG leadership, and to the participants who attended. We look forward to hosing the next event and welcome any comments or suggestions. If you were not able to attend the session, the slides can be viewed from the link below. Baake Presentation Slides
