On behalf of the Conference Organizing Committee, I would like to inform you of the:
SECOND INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON SCIENCE IN SOCIETY
Carlos III University
11-13 November 2010
The Science in Society conference addresses the social impacts, values, pedagogies, politics and economics of science. It is an inclusive forum that welcomes a breadth of perspectives on science from practitioners, teachers and researchers representing a wide range of academic disciplines.
Plenary speakers include:
o Matthew Stanley, New York University, New York, USA
o Fernando Broncano, Carlos III University, Madrid, Spain
o Javier Echeverria, Instituto de Filosofia of the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Cientificas, Madrid, Spain
o Jesus Zamora-Bonilla, UNED, Madrid, Spain

o Jimena Canales, Harvard University, Boston, USA
o Javier Ordonez, Universidad Autonoma de Madrid, Madrid, Spain
In addition, the conference will also include numerous paper, workshop and colloquium presentations by researchers, practitioners, and teachers. We would particularly like to invite you to respond to the conference call-for-papers. Presenters may choose to submit written papers for publication in the fully refereed International Journal of Science in Society. If you are unable to attend the conference in person, virtual registrations are also available which allow you to submit a paper for refereeing and possible publication in this fully refereed academic journal, as well as access to the electronic version of the conference proceedings. You are also able to upload a presentation to the conference You Tube Channel.
The deadline for the next round in the call for papers (a title and short abstract) is 21 September 2010. Future deadlines will be announced on the conference website after this date. Proposals are reviewed within two weeks of submission. Full details of the conference, including an online proposal submission form, may be found at the conference website: www.ScienceinSocietyConference.com.
