Call for papers - Annual Conference of the Society for the Study of Nanoscience and Emerging Technologies

(Nanowerk News) The Second Annual Conference of the Society for the Study of Nanoscience and Emerging Technologies, organized by S.NET, takes place from September 29 to October 2, 2010 in Darmstadt, Germany.
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 at www.theSNET.net.
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.
