Tokyo 2010: 35th 4S Annual Meeting

El 15 de febrero vence el plazo para la presentación de trabajos en la Reunión Anual 4S (The Society For Social Studies of Science) en Tokio.  A continuación reproducimos parte de la convocatoria (en inglés):

The 2010 4S conference will be held with JSSTS (Japanese Society for Science and Technology Studies). This is the first 4S annual meeting in Asia. 4S members will have a chance to experience, interact with, and understand the cultural diversity of Asia. Furthermore, holding 4S in Asia opens the door to questions relating to universalities and cultural differences in STS concepts. This meeting will provide a good opportunity for reconsidering STS in global contexts as well as strengthening STS network worldwide.
Given the growing size of the 4S conferences and the desire to be as inclusive as possible, the program committee will need to make full use of the available time slots. Therefore, individuals may be listed for a paper presentation and one other role (such as session chair or discussant but not a second paper) for a maximum of two appearances.
Paper abstracts may be submitted individually or by a session organizer. Submissions are in the form of abstracts of 500 words or less, and must include a summary of the paper’s main arguments and methodology, as well as a brief statement on the contribution to the STS literature. Please choose the most suitable categories for your paper.
A) Environmental Studies
B) Biomedicine
C) Food
D) Information and Communication Technology
E) Energy / Nuclear Power
F) Engineering
G) Gender Studies
H) Economics / Market Studies
I) Public Engagement / Social Movement
J) Science Communication
K) Science, Technology, and Public Policy
