PERFORM CONFERENCE 2018 Paris – UNESCO headquarters, 14 – 15 june 2018

The combination of the performing arts with science is an invaluable vehicle to connect young people with the forms, tools and findings of sciences. It also becomes a tool for young researchers to maintain open communication about their work with museums, school teachers and high school students, in a world that requires new communication skills and in which the exposure of scientific work becomes a requirement for social support for research.

This call to present posters seeks to connect attendees around the initiatives that different actors take in their own context: teachers who develop a school project around science and theatre with their students, museum professionals that promote the discovery of scientific careers through human mediation, young researchers who have found in the stand up performing a fun way to talk about their work.

We want to encourage the presentation of these works in other formats beyond the poster: a small intervention, a song, or an installation, are possibilities that can give another face to the poster session, to be developed on the morning of 15 June.

The General Poster session is open to all attendees.

The main themes to be developed are: Stereotypes in science, Inclusiveness, Ethics, Responsible Research and Innovation.


The 2018 Perform Conference Committee will take the following criteria into account when selecting proposals:

  1. Relevance of the theme and relation with the main subjects
  2. Language understandable for attendees non specialised in the domain (students, science journalists, policy makers, teachers, museum professionals).
  3. Quality, content, and originality in order to attract delegates and promote new insights and discussion.
  4. Title limited to 150 characters, abstract limited to 2000 characters. If the abstract is selected, the poster will be printed at UNESCO, and the format is A0 ((84,1 × 118,9 cm)
