Dedicated primarily to improving written communication, the organizers are excited to kick-off the event with an improvscience workshop. Through improvisational theater exercises and games, participants at ComSciCon will get to know one another and create a playful environment in which they can build with each others ideas throughout the conference.

On May 22nd at UC San Diego, the Post Doctoral Association has organized for improvscience to lead a highly interactive communicating science workshop in which  postdocs and graduate students will practice creating new professional introductions and conversations. The goals are to recognize our ability to talk, to introduce ourselves, to create a memorable interaction and then to let our science and ambitions be part of those conversations.
