Dear colleagues all around the world,

We'd like to remind you of the deadline for abstracts for the Workshop 
on "Public awareness of Research Infrastructures: - Expectations - 
Experiences - Examples", which is quite close in March! Abstract 
submission will be closed in about 2 weeks, but registration is open 
until May.

Please have a look on the web page www.frm2.tum.de/erf-workshop 
<http://www.frm2.tum.de/erf-workshop> for further details and news.

The international workshop generates a lot of interest so make sure that 
you are a part of it! Submit your abstract and register!

*Venue: European Southern Observatory, Garching near Munich, Germany

*Date & Time:*
18th June 2015: 14.00 - 18.30h
19th June 2015: 9.00 - 14.00h

*Scope of the workshop*
A common task of large scale, European Research Infrastructures is to 
disseminate their achievements and capabilities to funding bodies as 
well as to the general public. Similar expectations on Public Relations 
(PR) concern large public funded projects like Integrated Infrastructure 
Initiatives (EU) or other big consortia (national projects). The aim of 
this workshop is to bring together representatives from funding agencies 
with facility and project managers to discuss the needs and expectations 
of dissemination activities. It should act as a forum for information 
officers to share experience of their work.

• What do science organisations expect from PR?
• How is PR organised at large scale Research Infrastructures?

• Communicating the socio-economic return of large scale facilities
• Using social media for science communication
• Communication to target groups
• Addressing the media and journalists
• PR of a facility under construction
• Public engagement with large scale facilities
• Risk communication
• PR of European projects

We encourage you to submit an abstract to share your work experience in 
the parallel sessions.

Best regards,
The organising committee
