Meet NAMES 2018 Keynote Speakers!

We are glad to welcome Dr. Islam Hussein, an Egyptian Virologist & Science Communicator, on the conference’s first day on Wednesday, 24 October. Dr. Hussein’s keynote speech will highlight how to communicate science online, from a scientist’s perspective, and will draw some lessons from his experience with establishing a video blog about viruses called “Virolvlog”.

As for the conference’s second day, you will meet Dr. Graham Walker, an Academic Program Coordinator at the Australian National University, and Science Show Performer and Consultant. He will discuss how to get all emotional about science communication, how to connect with audiences, which emotions are critical, and what the underlying mechanism of eliciting them is.
