The field of science and technology studies (STS) has become increasingly
prominent in the Nordic countries. The purpose of the biennial Nordic STS
conference is to promote exchange of ideas and collaboration among STS
scholars by providing a regional forum for presenting on-going research,
networking, and initiating new ideas and conversations. The Nordic STS
conference has been organised since 2013, when the Centre for Technology,
Innovation and Culture/TIK at University of Oslo took the initiative of
organising the first conference.

We are happy to announce the 4th Nordic STS conference to be held at Tampere
University, Finland, in June 13-14. A pre-conference workshop for junior
researchers will take place June 12th. The conference is organised in
collaboration with The Finnish Society for Science and Technology Studies and
the Research Center for Knowledge, Science, Technology and Innovation Studies,
Tampere University. At the fourth Nordic STS conference the keynote speakers
are: Harro van Lente,
Maastricht University, Mianna Meskus, Tampere
University and Maria
Nedeva, University of

This year the conference has a two-stage submission process. In this first
stage, we invite scholars to submit thematic session proposals that introduce
a particular area of study, research problem, or research approach relating to
science and technology studies. Proposals for thematic sessions should be
short (max. 300 words) and contain a brief description of the topic as well as
the names, institutional affiliations, and email addresses of the session
organisers. The accepted sessions will be published in the second stage of the
submission process.

Please submit your session proposal by December 5, 2018, using the following

If you do not have a suggestion for a thematic session this year, dont worry!
We will publish a call for abstracts in December. You can then see if your
research fits into one of the accepted thematic sessions or you can submit

organisers will place your presentation to a suitable session). The deadline
for submitting abstracts will be January 18, 2019.
