2010 CSE Annual Meeting

CSE Annual Conference


14-18 May 2010

Please click on the Program of Events for the latest conference program schedule.

Online registration is closed. However, you may still register onsite.

The 2010 CSE Annual Meeting theme is "The Changing Climate of Scientific Publishing-The Heat Is On." It reflects a program that addresses both global climate change (and the role science editors have in communicating relevant research on the topic) and the rapidly changing nature of the workplace and technology in the 21st century.

The causes and implications of global climate change are open to debate, but few would argue the pertinence of the issue. Our outstanding slate of plenary speakers will help inspire and guide our discussion about climate change: J. Marshall Shepherd, researcher in and lecturer on issues related to weather and climate; George Luber, epidemiologist whose research interests include the health effects of climate change; and Michael Lemonick, a senior writer for Climate Central, former senior writer for Time magazine, a lecturer at Princeton University, and the author of several books on science.

CSE 2010 Annual ConferenceWe also recognize a metaphorical change in the climate surrounding scientific publishing. The meeting will address these issues so that attendees-regardless of level of experience-will take home useful knowledge that can be applied to their work and careers. Moreover, on Friday and Saturday before the meeting, CSE's renowned Short Courses will be presented. Early registration is encouraged to ensure enrollment in the course of your choice.

Atlanta is a marvelous city and environment for our 2010 meeting, and spring is a beautiful time to visit the "capital of the South," with warm weather and gorgeous flowers blooming everywhere. It will be a wonderful place to meet, make new acquaintances, renew old friendships, and expand your professional horizon.
