2010 Annual Meeting
Held jointly with Japanese Society for Science and Technology Studies
August 25 – 29, 2010
"STS in Global Contexts"
Abstract submission has closed.
The 2010 4S conference will be held with JSSTS (Japanese Society for Science and Technology Studies). This is the first 4S annual meeting in Asia. 4S members will have a chance to experience, interact with, and understand the cultural diversity of Asia. Furthermore, holding 4S in Asia opens the door to questions relating to universalities and cultural differences in STS concepts. This meeting will provide a good opportunity for reconsidering STS in global contexts as well as strengthening STS network worldwide.

The Mentorship Program has become a popular part of the Annual Meeting. The goal of the project is to facilitate mentoring of individuals who are new to the conference and/or to the Society. A mentoring relationship assumes a minimum of one conversation at the Annual Meeting. We hope that mentoring relationships will also continue with at least two follow-up phone calls or emails during the following 12 months. Scholars willing to be mentors or who desire a mentor can fill out the interest form at the Mentorship Program Registration page.
