February 28, 2014: Deadline for Submissions of Individual Papers, Movies, and Session Proposals

The 2014 ESOCITE/4S joint conference will be held in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The general theme of the conference is “Science in context(s): Souths and Norths”, which refers to the opportunity for STS scholars to meet colleagues (and research traditions) from other parts of the world, giving rise to new dialogues and exchanges.

Individual abstracts and proposals for sessions should emphasize how they will make original and timely contributions to any theme relevant to science and technology studies (STS). The Joint Meeting welcomes papers, session proposals, and events that are innovative in their delivery, organization, range of topics, and type of public, and which bring new resources to the STS community to explore these new relations and themes.

Apart from traditional research papers, the Joint Meeting conference also welcomes proposals for sessions and papers using ‘new media’ or other forms of new presentation. This year, we plan to hold special sessions in which presentations are in the form of a movie or video. Movie and video submissions should be related to STS. At this stage, a brief description of the movie/video (up to 250 words) and length will suffice.

Due to the ever increasing number of submissions and the desire to be as inclusive as possible, each participant will be limited to only one paper presentation or movie and one other activity (such as session chair or discussant but not a second paper) for a maximum of two appearances.

  • Individual submission abstracts should be up to 250 words. They should include the main arguments, methodology, and their contribution to the STS literature. Paper titles should not exceed 10 words. Please list five key words to assist the program chair to group individual papers into a session. You may choose to submit your abstract to an open panel where you would prefer your paper to be included, or you can leave panel selection to the program chairs. The call for open panels was issued on November 3rd and received enthusiastic responses from both the ESOCITE and 4S communities. View the full descriptions here.
  • Session proposal abstracts should have a maximum of 250 words. Each session proposal should contain a summary and rationale, including a brief discussion of its contribution to STS. Session proposals should be designed to fit two-hour time slots. A typical session will contain six papers or five papers with a discussant. A minimum of three paper abstracts conforming to the above criteria for abstracts must be submitted for a proposed session. The program chairs may assign additional papers to proposed sessions to meet the typical session composition. Each presenter in the session must have a user account in the submission system that includes name, affiliation, and contact information. Session organizers can create user accounts on behalf of their authors, if necessary.

Movie and video submissions must draw on STS scholarship. At this stage, a brief description of the movie/video (up to 250 words) and length will suffice.

The submission period opens on December 16th, 2013 and closes on February 28th, 2014.
