We call for images to participate in the First Scientific Image Contest organized by the Boston Chapter of the Society of Spanish Scientists in the USA (ECUSA). The contest is open to everyone with an affinity to Spain and aims at showcasing the secret beauty of science.

We encourage you to submit your scientific images, regardless of whether you are a researcher with astonishing pictures from your microscope, or you have never worked as a researcher but have been able to capture the essence of science through your art skills. A jury composed of artists and scientists from the Spanish community in Boston will preselect the best 15 images. The selected images will be posted on Internet for an online voting and also exhibited in an event organized on September 24th by the Boston Chapter of ECUSA, in which the winners will be announced. Prizes will be awarded.

Please, read carefully the call and do not hesitate in sending us your images to scientificimage.boston@gmail.com before August 31, 2018!

7:00 PM19:00

ECUSADIVULGA@NY presents: “Champions of Illusion” with Susana Martinez-Conde & Stephen Macknik.

In Champions of Illusion, Profs. Susana Martinez-Conde and Stephen Macknik present a smorgasbord of mystifying images, many selected from their Best Illusion of the Year Contest. Whether it’s false motion, tricks of perspective, or shifting colors, Champions of Illusion is packed with adventures in visual perception. If you have ever found yourself face-to-face with an utterly bewildering illusion, you know the powerful effect such images have on the mind. The question we often ask ourselves is, How is that possible? Martinez-Conde and Macknik, who study the intersection of neuroscience, illusions, and stage magic, explain just why we think we see the things we see.  

    • The presentation will be followed by a book-signing and a networking with a small appetizer.
    • The event will be held in English.
    • Free entry, register HERE.
    • Date & time: Thu, March 1st, 2018, 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM (EST)

Fundraising and Proposal Writing for R&D

Are you interested in building your own R&D portfolio, but don’t know how to do it? Are you tired of not getting enough funding? The success of researchers highly depends on their ability to sell their own ideas. Unfortunately, this training is not part of graduate programs and affects daily the ability of many researchers to advance in their careers. Fundraising and proposal writing is an art and a skill-set that is essential to succeed in R&D. The two sessions will prepare the attendees to write irresistible proposals. The first session will focus on ‘theory’ while the second session will focus on ‘practice.’ Please feel free to bring a solicitation or proposal for review and feedback.
