Innovating the Future: Critical Perspectives in
Science & Technology*
  2010 ST Global Call for Abstracts

AAAS and the student organizing committee for the 10th Annual Conference of
Science & Technology in Society are pleased to join forces with National
Academies' Annual Forum for Graduate Students in Science, Technology, and
Health Policy. The newly merged conference has been extended to 2 1/2 days,
and will continue to provide a professional and interactive venue for all
graduate students from Science & Technology Policy (STP), Science &
Technology Studies (STS), and related fields including, but not limited to,
health, energy and environment, space, information and communications,
innovation, education, and ethical, legal and social implications of science
and technology.

Every year, prominent figures from both STP and STS deliver keynote
addresses. In addition to presenting papers and receiving constructive
feedback on their research, students will have the opportunity to build
national and international networks with each other and prominent scholars
and professionals. As an added benefit to attendees and participants, a
portion of the conference will be dedicated to career development, with
representatives of government and non-government employers.

This year's conference will feature multiple tracks and concentrations,
including, but not limited to:

   - Ethical, Legal, and Social Dimensions of Science and Technology
   - Communicating Science to Policymakers and the Public
   - Education and Training for the S&T Workforce
   - The Role of S&T in Innovation, Economic Development, Job Creation, and
   - Priorities in STS: Energy, Health Care Quality, Green Technology,
   Climate Change
   - The Global Perspective on Science, Technology, and Culture

We are now accepting Abstracts for the conference which will run 2 1/2 days
from Friday April 9th in the afternoon through 1pm on Sunday April 11th.
