Saturday: 15 minutes of duckiness in Vienna

This Saturday in Vienna, Austria, Kees (“The Duck Guy”) Moeliker will will elaborate on ‘Science communication with a laugh: Improbable Research and the Ig Nobel Prizes’. In no more than fifteen minutes, he will tell how and why he won the 2003 Ig Nobel biology prize, highlight the (new) 2008 Ig Nobel prize winners and show a new way of communicating science: the Improbable TV series.

DETAILS: This is part of the SciCom08 conference, an event designed to explore the possibilities and boundaries of science communication (“What are the formats and experiences on a global scale, and are they useful for Austria?”). Saturday, a panel of four speakers (only one of who has studied homosexual necrophiliac ducks) will talk about their international experiences in the scicom trade.
