07.-08. Mai 2018
STS Conference Graz 2018 is the joint Annual Conference of the Institute of
Science, Technology and Society Studies at Alpen-Adria-Universität
Klagenfurt|Vienna|Graz (STS), the Inter-University Research Centre for Technology, Work and Culture
(IFZ) and the Institute for
Advanced Studies on Science, Technology and Society (IAS-STS).
We invite interested researchers in the areas of science, technology and
society studies and sustainability studies to give presentations. The
conference provides a forum to discuss on a broad variety of topics in these
fields – especially abstracts are encouraged which refer to aspects of the
conference themes and sessions.
Relevant Session Track:
Digitalization of Society
technology is around for some time now, but the transformative power of
digitalization for the society still seems to grow. Mobile devices,
connectivity, social media, platforms, big data and related developments as
well as the new practices and social innovations associated with them are going
to bring about substantial changes in many spheres of society. Currently, we
can observe how Twitter changes the political communication. In the economic
sphere a revolution in industrial production and work is heralded (“Industrie
4.0”) and new forms of platform economy are emerging. In everyday life, new
social practices like those of the quantified self movement can be found.
Techniques and practices of gamification are emerging in different fields of society.
It is important to understand the impact on society of these socio-technical
innovations, the challenges they pose as well as the opportunities associated
with them. In doing so, proposals for submissions should focus on a particular
sphere of society, a particular phenomenon of digitalization (such as big data
or gamification), or a particular opportunity (e.g. democratization) or
challenge (e.g. privacy).
Submission Deadline: January 19, 2018
Notification of Abstracts: until mid-February 2018
