Abstract

Perceptions of chemistry through education or scientific outreach are sensibly different; their articulation should be further considered. Image and Communication receive a renewal of reflection. What does it mean for chemistry? Is it only transmission of information or should it also take into account the interlocutor with his fears, belief, experience and potential valuable contribution? What is the impact of websites on the comprehension of chemistry issues?  

Participation is expected from teachers, mediators and journalists who are most welcome to submit abstracts of possible contributions.

This call also concerns congressists  registered in other thematics who have also interests in chemistry and society activities. ​​
