Cfp for S.Net 2015 is now outSnetconference2015-F-site

The Society for the Study of Nanoscience and Emerging Technologies (S.NET) is an international association that promotes intellectual exchange and critical inquiry about the advancement of nanoscience and emerging technologies in society. S.NET represents diverse communities, disciplines, viewpoints, and methodologies in the social sciences and humanities. It also welcomes contributions from scientists and engineers that advance the critical reflection of nanoscience and other emerging technologies. Due to its multidisciplinary approach, the S.NET community addresses a broad range of questions related to the development and societal embedding of new and emerging technologies, including, but not limited to the following themes:

  • Research dynamics and organisation
  • Innovation and use
  • Governance and regulation
  • Politics and ethics
  • Visions and cultural imaginaries
  • Roles of publics and stakeholders

As a major activity, S.NET holds annual conferences. The location for these conferences has changed from Europe to North America each year due to a founding aim of the society to foster trans-Atlantic research exchange and network building. As an increasing number of nations from around the globe now participate in the society, annual conference locations may extend in the future.

The 6th annual S.NET meeting was held in September 21-24, 2014, Karlsruhe. The Call for Papers and further information can be found here.

The 7th annual S.NET meeting will be held in Montréal, Canada, October 21-25, 2015. The cfp is now available. Deadline for abstract submission is June 8th, 2015.

The S.NET is run by a scientific board.
