Forward planning release from the BA
Date:8/21/2008

The BA Festival of Science will be in Liverpool from 6-11 September, bringing over 350 of the UK's top scientists and engineers to discuss the latest developments in science with the public. In addition to talks and debates at the University of Liverpool, there will be a host of events throughout the city as part of the European Capital of Culture celebrations.

Each year, the Festival generates hundreds of media stories in the UK and beyond.

Here is just a taster of what's to come at the Festival

  • Sustainability through science the BA Presidential Address with Sir David King
  • What am I eating exactly? How much do we really understand about what's in our foods?
  • Faces, words and attractiveness it's not all about physical attributes
  • Txt crimes, sex crimes and murder: the science of forensic linguistics
  • The importance of touch from artificial fingers to pleasurable stroking
  • The cultural evolution of human groups: from the development of ethnic identities to why human societies modernise
  • Alcohol, binge drinking and cognitive processes: why are some young people drinking heavily, and what long-lasting effects could it be having on their brains?
  • Should creationism be a part of the science curriculum?
  • Isotopes: silent witnesses to Earth history helping to reveal when complex animal life first appeared

The BA will be operating a Press Centre at the Festival from 8-11 September, sponsored by AstraZeneca, providing desk space, access to telephones, internet PCs and interview rooms with ISDN lines. Registered journalists will have access to embargoed speakers' papers online a fortnight before the event and will be able to attend press conferences with the key speakers at the Festival.

To register for access to embargoed speakers' papers and to the Press Centre itself, please visit www.the-ba.net/pressregister. Registration is now open.

Please note that there will also be a press launch for the Festival on 4 September 2008 in the Dana Centre, London, where key speakers from the Festival will be previewing their talks.
