This COMPASS science communication training will help participants share what they do, what they know - and most importantly - why it matters, in clear, lively terms. Grounded in the latest research on science communication, this training is designed to help participants find the relevance of their science for the audiences they most want to reach — journalists, policymakers, the public, and even other scientists.
In this hands on, skill-building workshop, participants will be introduced to The Message Box - COMPASS' most fundamental tool no matter who you are preparing to communicate with. Through a combination of lecture and interactive exercises we will explore some of the core concepts of good science communication including identifying, distilling and framing your messages so they are relevant to your audiences and recognizing and refining the use of technical jargon.
Interested participants are encouraged to register as soon as possible.

Many early career scientists, especially those attending the ASC for the first time, have a lot of questions about how to become a member of our community and why!
Simon Jennings, ICES Science Committee (SCICOM) Chair, introduces this breakfast event for early career scientists to kick off the week.
Kick the week off with a good breakfast and getting to know some of the key people within the organization, who will be there to answer all of your questions.
As this event has limited capacity, interested participants are encouraged to register as soon as possible.
Are you attending ASC for the first time? Our mentors can help you to get to know ICES and people in our network.
Three early career scientist awards will be presented at the conference (two for oral presentations and one for poster presentation). These awards will emphasize the quality of the presentations and not the career achievements of the early career scientists.
The awardee is the first author and major contributor of the research presented. They don't need be first-time presenters at an ASC, however, they should not have received a previous early career scientist award from ICES.
The prizes consist of certificates and €1,000 vouchers to be used to cover participation costs in an ICES training course, expert group meeting, symposium, or workshop, but not the ASC. The voucher must be redeemed within 24 months of the award.
