We at Nature Network are putting on a science blogging conference in London on 30 August 2008. More than 100 bloggers, scientists and science communicators will gather at the Royal Institution to discuss topics such as how science blogging can change (improve?) the public’s perception of science, how blogging can boost your creativity and be used as a teaching tool, how scientists can be more open with their primary research data, and what the future holds for online scientific communication.

Click here for the programme. A few sessions have been set aside to be ‘unconference’ sessions, meaning that the topic and the speakers will be proposed and decided on the day of the event.

Click here for more details about the conference. There’s already been quite a bit of discussion about the event in the conference’s forum on Nature Network.

Registration is free. Just email us (network at nature.com) with your name, affiliation, and a link to your blog if you have one.
