The programme for the annual convention, which will take place at Yukon College, Whitehorse, Canada, from May 24 to 26 2008, includes panel discussions, presentations, and a large display of posters about northern science and IPY projects. Participants will also go on a one-day field trip which will allow them to meet and talk with scientists and First Nations representatives outside Whitehorse.

CSWA is Canada's national alliance of professional science communicators and has about 450 members, including journalists, educators, freelance writers, publishers, and communications professionals from public and private organizations.
