The Early Career / Young Scientists Fora of the four large LHC experiments have joined forces to organise a cycle of soft skills workshops, where each event will focus on a different career development training aspect (CV writing, grant writing, importance of networking, career paths, negotiations for a new job, interview preparation, etc.).
The third of these workshops will take place on November 4, starting at 17:00 CEST, and will be dedicated to "Science Communication". We plan to touch on aspects of Science Communication on social media as well as using "classical" means such as articles or exhibitions. Given the ongoing COVID-19 situation, the event is going to be online only.
The agenda will follow the same pattern as our previous workshops, starting with a presentation, followed by a round table discussion with invited panelists and a Q&A session with open questions from all participants. The panel will consist of members from the outreach teams of each of the four large LHC experiments and from the CERN communications team as well as the chair of the International Particle Physics Outreach Group (IPPOG).

During registration you will have the opportunity to submit questions that you would like to be addressed by our panelists during the round table discussion. Please make use of this opportunity to help us shape the event according to your needs.
The deadline for registration is Friday, October 30.
The zoom meeting password will be emailed to you upon completion of your registration.
The event is open to all members of our collaboration as well as anyone at CERN.
