Call for Abstracts for the 2010 Canadian Science Policy Conference

The Canadian Science Policy Centre invites proposals for presentations at the upcoming Canadian Science Policy Conference (CSPC 2010) in Montreal, QC, from October 20-22, 2010.

CSPC is an annual event, specifically designed as a multi-sector forum for fostering science policy discourse in Canada. Those who attend, organize, and fund CSPC come from diverse sectors of the Canadian science policy community – from government and industry officials to business people, scientists, and academics – and the hope is that panel presentations will be similarly inclusive of Canada’s diverse interests in national, provincial, and municipal science policy. Thus, we will consider submissions from Canadian science policy stakeholders of quite diverse backgrounds.

Abstracts of no more than 300 words will be accepted until August 10, 2010. Please note that all proposals must be submitted under one of the five conference themes:

  • Increasing the Productivity of Canada’s Economy using Science and Technology
  • Global Perspectives on Science and Technology
  • Creating and Retaining Scientific Talent in Canada
  • A Glance at BioScience in Canada
  • Major Issues in Canadian Science Policy

Fifteen minutes will be allotted for each presentation, and each panel will be followed by a discussion period.

If you would like to present, please visit to submit an abstract.

Early bird registration for CSPC 2010 is now open.
