EASST2018: Meetings - Making Science, Technology and Society together

25-28th July 2018, Lancaster University, UK

The 2018 EASST conference will take place at Lancaster University, which is set in 560 acres of beautiful parkland and lies approximately three miles south of the City of Lancaster. The campus is easily accessible via road, rail and bicycle. There is a direct train service from Manchester’s International Airport. You can read more about the hosts, the Lancaster Centre for Science Studies (CSS), here.

Call for papers is open

The call for papers is now open. Read the theme , the call for papers page and view the list of accepted panels, which are divided into seven streams.  The deadline for submissions is 23:59 CEU 14/02/2018. Several streams include workshops, which are not open for contributions, but we will announce pre-registration for these, next year.

Given the growing size of EASST conferences and the desire to be as inclusive as possible, individuals may be listed for a paper presentation and one other role (such as session convenor, chair or discussant but not a second paper) for a maximum of two appearances.
