In October 2017, San Francisco will host the 10th World Conference of Science Journalists, an international meeting of science writers being held in the United States for the first time. With the theme “Bridging Science and Societies,” the gathering is dedicated to connecting audiences around the world with the science that affects and informs their daily lives. Science writers from six continents will come together to immerse themselves in the excitement of Northern California’s rich science and technology environment as they explore ways to better communicate with the public about important scientific developments and their impact. Topics span the spectrum of science and technology-based issues, including climate change, energy innovation, agriculture, genetics, vaccines, earthquake prediction, and space exploration to explore hemispheric issues — support broad participation by attendees from emerging nations worldwide
