We are seeking proposals for presentations that explore the ways in which political communication can inform and facilitate the creation of effective, evidence-based solutions to the challenges our societies are facing. Submissions are not restricted to specific studies on solutions but we invite presenters to think about the impact of their research for societies within a solution-based political communication framework.

Abstracts should be no longer than 400 words (incl. references).

Submissions should be made via the submission site by the deadline of 31 March, 2023.

In addition to the main conference, we will also host a workshop on ‘Communicating through the Noise: Science Communication for Early-Career Scholars’. If you are an early-career scholar, this workshop is an opportunity not to be missed! The deadline to apply is 31 March, and you can find more information and apply here:
