World Conference Of Science Journalist in Lausanne 2019  Our highest priority is to bring together professionals and students in science journalism and science writing from around the world to exchange ideas and skills, to build networks and so to foster quality science journalism and collaboration on a global scale.

This collaborative spirit defines our region. In Lausanne, with France just a short boat ride away and Italy not far beyond, cultures and languages meet, ideas are exchanged, and people of all backgrounds work, play and make plans for a brighter future together.

This effort will not only foster science journalism in all its forms, it is also of great relevance to people around the world. Science, technology and innovation play an ever more important role in society – and good, fair and critical reporting is the indispensable prerequisite that enables informed democratic decisions to be taken on which paths humanity will take.

WCSJ2019 is not just an adventure for its own sake. It is part of a wider push to enable science journalists to take responsibility and fulfil their role in society. Our quest for new heights extends beyond the global community of science journalists to scientists, politicians and decision-makers as well as the public at large. 

Four Major Theme
Participants will be offered a dense four-day professional programme from 1-4 July 2019 that forms the core of the conference. To help journalists orient themselves in the programme and to make sure no important issue is forgotten, the core programme is divided into four major themes


The Programme Committee is in the process of evaluating proposals. A very high number of strong proposals have been received, which is leading to a longer evaluation time than initially foreseen. 
You will be informed from 21 September onwards whether your proposal has been accepted or not.

The Programme Committee may suggest changes in wording, focus, format, and speakers/moderator of a session to ensure quality, focus, and diversity. Those concerned will be asked whether they accept the changes, and if so to make the necessary adjustments to their proposals.


Session producers are strongly encouraged to find independent funding to cover travel and accommodation costs for themselves and their moderators and speakers (note: the conference fee, covering the whole program plus all social events, will be waived).

In cases where such funding, fully or partially, cannot be secured, WCSJ2019 will cover travel and accommodation expenses (within the limits of its travel policy) for two to three nights in Lausanne for one producer as well as up to a maximum of 4 participants in the session. Once a session is accepted, specific funding needs will be discussed with the organizers.

The Programme Committee thanks you in advance for putting your energy, thoughts and creativity into writing a high-quality proposal, and wishes all submitters the best of luck. Whether your submission is successful or not, we hope to see you in Lausanne in July 2019!

On behalf of the Programme Committee,

Yves Sciama and Martin Enserink
