The European Association of Science Editors (EASE) is an internationally oriented community of individuals from diverse backgrounds, linguistic traditions and professional experience who share an interest in science communication and editing.
The EASE Conference will take place in Split, Croatia. Ana Marusic has kindly arranged the use of facilities at the School of Medicine of the University of Split and we thank the University authorities for this.
Do join us - registration is now open.
The optional workshops take place before and after the conference. It is possible to attend the optional workshops without attending the conference.
