University of Texas at Austin

Unable to join us in Austin?

We have several ways for you to follow the action. From selected NASW workshops, we will have lively reports from travel fellows, filed on the NASW web site, and Twitter reports under the hashtag #sciwri09. We will also be videotaping the New Horizons sessions Sunday through Tuesday and streaming the talks live on the CASW web site, beginning Sunday morning at 9 a.m. central time. We will also be archiving the video.  If you like this, we’ll try to make it a regular feature of New Horizons. In addition, NASW members — whether attending ScienceWriters or not — can now register on the CASW web site for background material and contact info on New Horizons speakers.
