Description

As High-Energy physics is going global, high-energy physicists and their organizations collaborate more and more not only into science but also in communicating about it. Communications play an increasing role in our society, and we face big challenges as the visibility of our field is becoming high. Networks for outreach and communications are then crucial to promote the field in a coherent way at the global level, to coordinate activities and develop common actions. We will present networks that developed mainly around CERN such as EPPCN, Interactions, IPPOG... with a focus on two key questions: How can physicists benefit from these networks? What can they do to to help these networks?
