About Society for the Study of Nanoscience and Emerging Technologies (S-NET)
The Society for the Study of Nanocience and Emerging Technologies (S-NET) is an international organization to promote open intellectual exchange towards the advancement of knowledge and understanding of nanotechnology in society, including its connections with social and other technological developments. S-NET seeks participation from those working within a diversity of communities, viewpoints, and methodologies, and aspires for its intellectual conversation to be informed by this diversity. S-NET seeks interaction with stakeholders and intermediaries, as those interactions contribute to its core mission. The Society pursues its mission primarily through the organization of a regular meeting, and aims for these meetings to reflect its diversity and international membership. Concerns were expressed about there being no mention of ethics or normative concerns; these might be added in the second paragraph or in a new paragraph.
