Second Annual Conference of the Society for the Study of Nanoscience and Emerging Technologies

Darmstadt, Germany | Posted on March 2nd, 2010

The Society for the Study of Nanoscience and Emerging Technologies(S.NET) is an international association that promotes open intellectual exchange towards the advancement of knowledge and understanding of nanotechnologies in society. S.NET represents diverse communities, viewpoints, and methodologies in the social sciences and humanities. It welcomes contributions from scientists and engineers that advance the critical reflection of nanotechnologies and related developments.

The program committee invites all discussions of anthropological, cultural, economic, ethical, historical, philosophical, political, and sociological aspects of nanosciences and emerging technologies. This can take the form of individual abstracts, proposals for sessions with three to five presentations, and other formats. 250-word abstracts for individual papers, up to 1000-word-abstracts for sessions and other formats can be submitted online until March 15 (for instructions see below). Notifications of acceptance will be mailed by April 30, 2010. Graduate students are encouraged to submit.

In the spirit of an emerging society that looks at emerging technologies as an emerging field of inquiry, we welcome all innovative suggestions about themes and session-formats to foreground critical issues. These can be submitted informally at any time to the program committee. Where needed, we will try to secure travel stipends for speakers. - This year's plenary speakers are Armin Grunwald, Richard Jones, Andrew Light, Bernard Stiegler, and Jan Youtie.

More information about S.NET, the past meeting in Seattle, and the upcoming conference in Darmstadt can be found at S.NET Home www.thesnet.net/Welcome.html

If you would like to contribute to S.NET 2010:

First of all, you may download the Call for Papers.

Second, to make a submission go to EasyChair, which offers an easy way to manage conferences and their proceedings. There is no need to submit entire papers. When the system asks you to upload your "paper", please upload a pdf- or doc-version of your abstract - not docx, txt, or the like. It is sufficient to enter the first paragraph of your submission into the space provided for "abstracts".

Program Committee:

* Diana Bowman (Public Health and Law, University of Melbourne, Australia)
* Julia Guivant (Sociology and Political Science, Santa Catarina, Brazil)
* David Guston (Political Science/Center for Nanotechnology in Society, Arizona State University, USA)
* Barbara Herr Harthorn (Feminist Studies, Anthropology, Sociology/Center for Nanotechnology in Society, University of California Santa Barbara, USA)
* Brice Laurent (Sociology, Mines ParisTech, France)
* Colin Milburn (English, University of California Davis, USA)
* Cyrus Mody (History, Rice University, United USA)
* Alfred Nordmann (Philosophy, nanoOffice and NanoCenter, Darmstadt Technical University and University of South Carolina - chair)
* Ingrid Ott (Economics, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany - co-chair)
* Arie Rip (Philosophy of Science and Technology, University of Twente, Netherlands)
* Ursula Weisenfeld (Business Administration, Leuphana University, Lüneburg, Germany)
