This conference is hosted by Cambridge University and will address many of the intersections of science and society: the social impacts of science, the knowledge making process of science, as well as the politics and economics of science. Even though the larger focus of this conference is on science and society, they welcome papers ranging from normative philosophical arguments to specific policy discussions to papers addressing concerns in regards to the teaching of science. Please visit the conference website for more information.
Additionally, the call for papers is open until tomorrow (2/19/2009). If you wish to submit an abstract, you can do so on the conference website posted above. One last note, which may be particularly important for us Americans, is that this conference will feature virtual presentations via You-Tube. (So, I assume that means we can participate without a 2,000 dollar plane ticket!)
