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. From April 9th to 11th, 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. In addition,
there will be a poster session during the Friday night reception.  Although
not required, we encourage students to prepare a poster to present at the
reception or to complement their formal presentation.

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 of up to 250 words for the conference which
will run 2 1/2 days from Friday April 9th in the afternoon through 1pm on
Sunday April 11th.   In your abstract, please indicate if you plan on
preparing a presentation, poster, or both.
