The 2018 "Visions In Science" conference will have a special focus on the interplay between science and society. The recent political outlook towards science is becoming increasingly hostile. The growing skepticism among the general populace towards science is equally worrying. With the veracity of well proven scientific facts and methods being questioned, it is of paramount importance that we initiate dialogue among the scientific community.
The doctoral researchers at the Max Plank Society believe that the solution lies in open communication and bridging the divide between science and society. Only by sharing knowledge and new perspectives, can we change the way society percieves science. It is necessary that we look inwards and promote objective, unbiased critical thinking among the scientific community and subsequently the general public. It is with this intent that the conference brings together leading scientists from diverse fields and seeks answers and possible solutions to remedy the current situation.
In this conference, science will be presented in a way that is accessible to not just relevant experts but to a broader audience from diverse backgrounds, in a way that it facilitates dialogue. Additionally, despite the wide-ranging nature of today's scientific research, the conference wil focus on how all forms of science affect society in direct and indirect ways.
Registration costs 30€ for those without affiliation to the Max Planck society. More information can be found here: http://www.visions-in-science.org/visions/
