Over 400 people usually attend the Science Communication Conference, a two day event organised by the British Science Association in partnership with the Wellcome Trust which brings together people from across the science communication field. Representatives from science centres, festivals, research councils and universities join colleagues working in the same field to discuss hot topics affecting the science community. At this year's conference, chaired by science writer, broadcaster and comedian Timandra Harkness, Professor Brian Cox, Professor of Particle Physics at the University of Manchester, is one of the key note speakers. He'll be in conversation with Alok Jha, Science and Environment Correspondent for The Guardian.
