Target audience:  Historians, science and technology studies scholars, women’s and gender studies researchers. We encourage especially the submission of papers by graduate students and independent scholars. Each participant is allowed to submit only one paper. 

Estimated attendance.  We anticipate an attendance of 30 to 50 attendees. This small, interactive meeting is aimed at opening up new directions in research to explore emerging research fields. The symposium has a wide participation and involves mature scientists as well as young, independent researchers and scholars. The relatively small scale (in terms of people involved) provides an ideal platform for focus on the topic and for all participants to contribute to discussions and plan follow-up collaborative work.
