Gentle Reminder: CfP: Standardisation and the Digital Society

                ***Apologies for cross-posting***
<br>
<br>
<br>Folks,
<br>
<br>A Very Happy New Year to all of you.

<br>This year's focus is on 'Standardisation and the Digital Society'.
<br>
<br>The CfP is enclosed below; the deadline for the submission of abstracts 
<br>is 20 January 2020. Happy writing.
<br>

<br>
<br>Cheers,
<br>Kai.

<br>CALL FOR PAPERS
<br>
<br>Standardisation and the Digital Society
<br>
<br>A Session of the
<br>18th Annual STS Conference, Graz 2020
<br>
<br>Graz, Austria
<br>4 - 6 May 2020
<br>
<br>
<br>Smart systems are a fairly recent phenomenon that is becoming 
<br>increasingly popular, not just as a research topic but also in real 
<br>life. Prominent examples include the Smart Grid, Smart Manufacturing, 
<br>Intelligent Transport Systems and Smart Cities. The 'smartness' of these 
<br>systems is the result of the integration of ICT into 'traditional' 
<br>technologies, thus providing them with advanced control and 
<br>communication functions previously available only in the virtual world.
<br>
<br>With smart systems, billions of sensors (the 'Internet of Things', IoT) 
<br>will collect data and transmit it for analysis. This process may lead to 
<br>conclusions, recommendations and, eventually, action, possibly without 
<br>any human intervention. In any case, the outcomes will have major 
<br>socio-economic, ecological and potentially ethical ramifications and 
<br>will directly impact citizens, businesses and society as a whole. They 
<br>may also have considerable legal ramifications.
<br>
<br>This session solicits contributions that may help explain and explore 
<br>the role of standards and standardisation for the ongoing digitisation 
<br>of society and how STS could help improve standards setting and to make 
<br>standards more beneficial for society.
<br>
<br>Topics include (but are not limited to):
<br>
<br>* The role of standards for the digital society.
<br>* Responsible standardisation.
<br>* The role and representation of societal stakeholders in smart systems
<br>   standardisation.
<br>* Legitimacy and influence of different players in standards development.
<br>* Potential ethical issues in smart systems standardisation
<br>* Possible contributions of society to standards development.
<br>* Social norms and their impact on standardisation.
<br>
<br>Abstracts should not exceed 500 words, have up to 5 keywords and provide 
<br>authors' contact details. They should be submitted through the 
<br>conference's submission system via
<br>https://sts-conference.isds.tugraz.at/event/11/abstracts/
<br>
<br>Abstracts and full papers (to be submitted after the conference; 
<br>optional) will be published as online-proceedings (ISSN). Particularly 
<br>good and relevant papers will be fast-tracked to the Int. Journal of 
<br>Standardization Research
<br>
