> Although traditional scientific training typically does not prepare  
> scientists and engineers to be effective communicators outside of  
> academia, NSF and other funding agencies are increasingly  
> encouraging researchers to extend beyond peer-reviewed publishing  
> and communicate their results directly to the greater public.  
> Further, scientists and engineers who foster information-sharing and  
> respect between science and the public are essential for the public  
> communication of and engagement with science.

> There is no registration fee to attend this workshop; however, space
