First announcment of the conference 2007
Dear NYEX members, fans, and addicts,
Respecting the conclusion from our last meeting in Balatonfured, I can inform you that the Petnica Science Center is ready to host the next NYEX workshop/conference. Here are some our proposals:
- NYEX Annual Conference will be organized in October 18-20, 2007 in the Petnica Science Center.
- There will be three main topics of the Conference:
1. Toward Successful National Policies that Support Young Talents in Science
2. Effects of Out-of-school Science Education
3. Professional Support for Young Talents in Science -- Examples of Good Practice.
- We expect that our colleagues who are interested to take part in the Conference or/and to give a presentation on the Conference announce their contribution to the NYEX Board. Deadline for application is May 31st. More details relate to the presentations, papers, technical facilities, printed conference book, traveling, accommodation, wine,
food, wine again, guests, special guests, media coverage, etc. will be shared to everybody interested on time.
- There will be some non-obligatory pre-conference events but all details will be announced in next couple of months.
In 2007 the Petnica Science Center celebrates its 25 anniversary and we are very happy to make very good meeting.
Now, we are interested if any NYEX member can help us in contacts with potential sponsors including international organizations that already had shown interest in NYEX activities (such as UNESCO, European Commission, NATO, professional associations like EMBO, ESOF, ECHA, etc.).
I wish everybody a lot of good health, success and nice moments in 2007!
