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 Society pursues its mission primarily through the organization of an annual meeting, and aims for these meetings to reflect its diversity and international membership.
Call for Papers/Abstracts/Symposia is available here. **NOTE: The submissions deadline has been extended to 21 March 2011.**
The third annual meeting of the Society for the Study of Nanoscience and Emerging Technologies (S.NET) will take place Monday 7 November to Thursday 10 November in Tempe, Arizona at the Mission Palms Hotel. The meeting is being co-organized by the Centers for Nanotechnology in Society at Arizona State University (CNS-ASU) and at University of California, Santa Barbara (CNS-UCSB).
The NSF Center for Nanotechnology in Society at UCSB serves as a national research and education center, a network hub among researchers and educators concerned with societal issues concerning nanotechnologies, and a resource base for studying these issues in the US and abroad. The Center addresses education for a new generation of social science and nanoscience professionals, and it conducts research on the historical context of the nano-enterprise, on innovation processes and global diffusion of nanotech, and on risk perception and the public sphere. CNS-UCSB researchers address a linked set of social and environmental issues regarding the domestic US and global creation, development, commercialization, production, consumption, and control of specific kinds of nanoscale technologies.
