Thursday, May 20, 2017 TBA Location: 2nd floor ATEC Lobby, rooms 2.101 and 2.602, JSOM 1.212

Please see for full details. Below is a brief overview:

This interdisciplinary conference seeks to explore the interplay between human, ethical, cultural, and political values, on the one hand, and science, technology, engineering, and medical research and practice, on the other hand. We invite presentations that seek not only to understand how values and science can and do influence one another, but also how they should interact (as well as interactions and influences that should be avoided). Finally, we are ultimately interested in promoting ethically responsible and socially beneficial scientific research and technological innovation, the social conditions for the pursuit and appreciation of science and technology, and critical reflection about the influence of science, technology, and medicine on our values, culture, practices, and worldview.

This year includes collaboration with the Comics and Popular Arts Conference (CPAC) to jointly present a special set of target themes for the conference.

The conference venues: 2nd floor ATEC Lobby, rooms 2.101 and 2.602, JSOM 1.212

The check-in/registration desk will be located across from ATC 2.101 which is on the 2nd Floor of the Arts and Technology Building.
