The 2017 inaugural Health Communication Barriers, Breakthroughs, and Best Practices (HCB3) Conference sponsored by the Health Communications Online Masters (HCOM) Program at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign will showcase scholarly and professional research on the relationships between technology, electronically mediated communication and healthcare. To explore current best practices, barriers, and breakthroughs within this field, the conference invites participants and attendees from all professional areas of healthcare, particularly those with an interest in the intersections between technology and patient experiences, health literacy, provider-patient communication, cultural health communication, e-health accessibility, and application of theory to real-world practice. The conference will feature three widely acclaimed keynote speakers with expertise in these topics, as well as an open call for presentations from the professional and academic healthcare community. The conference will be held March 1-3, 2017, asynchronously and 100% online.

The fifth webinar in the public engagement, education and outreach for CCS Series will explore the critically important subject of social site characterisation with the very researchers who named the process.
We are delighted to be able to reunite CCS engagement experts Sarah Wade and Sallie Greenberg, Ph.D. to revisit their 2011 research and guidance: 'Social Site Characterisation: From Concept to Application'. When published, this research and toolkit helped early CCS projects worldwide to raise the bar on their existing engagement practices. For this webinar, we have tasked these early thought leaders with reminding us of the importance of this research and considering the past recommendations in today's context. Sarah and Sallie will tackle the following commonly asked questions:(1) What exactly is meant by social site characterization? (2) Why it is important? (3) What would they consider best practice for getting to understand the social intricacies and impacts of a CCS project site?

The Carbon Management Technology Conference 2017 (CMTC 2017) will present insights and lessons learned on the requirements for carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) deployment and the technologies proposed for a modern energy infrastructure that maintains fuel diversity for sustainable growth while addressing climate change. This international conference is unique in its focus on current industry CCUS options being demonstrated at large-scale while providing insights into the next generation of innovation by leading researchers around the world.
The technology nexus of industry and researchers with a common goal of meeting 2050 forecasts requiring global CCUS deployment to achieve 2DS makes this a must attend conference. We look forward to seeing you in Houston.
