The excellent Science for Fiction (S4F) event at Imperial College, London, properly known as The Imperial College & Science Fiction Foundation workshop, is back once again. Designed specifically for SF and other writers to meet and talk to scientists presenting their research and knowledge in a very accessible and easy-going way, Science for Fiction 2020 runs on the 1st & 2nd July.
I’ve been to several of these events and they are not only great, at £30.00 GBP they are an absolute bargain. S4F 2020 starts after lunch on Wednesday 1st July, and runs all day on Thursday 2nd. Admission covers catering, including a buffet lunch on the 2nd.
Some financial support is available via the Science Fiction Foundation if necessary. Overnight accommodation is also available if you wish, at extra cost.
Details of subjects to be covered are still being sorted out, but will certainly include astronomy, physics and biology.
I can’t make S4F this year and am disappointed to miss it. In the past the events have been packed with research Doctors and Professors, NASA engineers and scientists, and more. If you like the idea of a day and a half of informative talks by friendly experts in the company of other writers – go!
To attend, email Dr. David Clements at D (dot) CLEMENTS (at) IMPERIAL (dot) AC (dot) UK.
Please include any specific requests for subjects to be covered as it may be possible to do so! Please also say if you have any dietary restrictions that would affect the order for lunch and tea.
