Communicating Astronomy with the Public (CAP2016) conference will take place from 16 to 20 May, 2016 in Medellin, Colombia. Professional communicators, research astronomers, press officers, science journalists and facilitators engaging different audiences with science and technology will be exchanging views and experiences during the five-day conference on the latest challenges in astronomy communication and public outreach.

The 2016 conference will have a different format from previous CAP conferences, changing the focus to a more practical approach. The Scientific Organising Committee will be looking for hands-on activities, studies and resources that the presenters can offer to the audience. Plenary talks will be combined with workshops in order to give participants the chance to learn new skills that they can then apply in their daily work. At the same time, attention will be given to increasing networking opportunities so that participants can identify potential partners or colleagues from whom they can learn in the longer term.
