CFP: The Fifth International Conference on Science in Society
Location: Warsaw, Poland
Date: 22-23 November 2013

Conference Focus

This Conference will address disciplinary and interdisciplinary challenges in the sciences, and in particular the relationships of science to society. At first glance, the scope and concerns of the Conference are enormous. However, in contrast to conferences with a specialist disciplinary focus, this Conference aims to explore, in an interdisciplinary spirit, linkages between different areas of concern and practices of investigation. We welcome presentation proposals which range from broad explorations of philosophical, theoretical, methodological and policy questions, to proposals which present finely grained evidence of the connections of science to society in microcosms of research, teaching and practice.
We are inviting proposals for paper presentations, workshops/interactive sessions, posters/exhibits, or colloquia. Our Conference themes include, The Values and Politics of Science, The Social Impacts and Economics of Science, and The knowledge Systems and Pedagogies of Science. For more information about the ideas and themes underlying this community, see our website, Proposal ideas that extend beyond these thematic areas will also be considered.
