This Conference will address a range of critically important themes in the various fields that address the complex and subtle relationships between technology, knowledge and society. Plenary speakers include some of the leading thinkers in these areas, as well as numerous paper, colloquium and workshop presentations.
The Technology Conference is a participants’ Conference. Participants are welcome to submit a presentation proposal either for a 30-minute paper, 60-minute workshop, a jointly presented 90-minute colloquium session. Parallel sessions are loosely grouped into streams reflecting different perspectives or disciplines. Each stream also has its own talking circle, a forum for focused discussion of issues. For those unable to attend the Conference in person, virtual participation is also available.
We encourage all presenters to submit written papers to The International Journal of Technology, Knowledge and Society, a fully refereed academic Journal. Virtual participants may also submit papers for consideration by the Journal. All Conference participants who have finalized their registration will receive a complimentary online subscription to the Journal. This subscription is valid until one year after the Conference end date.
