On 12 June 2019, prior to the 4th Nordic Science and Technology Studies conference, we will organise a one-day pre-conference for junior researchers (doctoral and postdoctoral researchers). This pre-conference will be organised in collaboration with the Finnish Society for Science and Technology Studies, the Research Center for Knowledge, Science, Technology and Innovation Studies, and the New Social Research programme, Tampere University.

The pre-conference is an opportunity to present work-in-progress and receive feedback from more experienced STS scholars. We are interested in a wide range of research as long as there is a topical, theoretical, and/or methodological connection to the field of STS.


The pre-conference abstract submission is now closed.

We will inform about accepted abstracts no later than 1 March 2019. Researchers, whose abstracts are accepted to the pre-conference, will be asked to submit a longer 10-page paper. The deadline for the longer research papers is 15 May 2019.

Please note that we encourage all junior researchers to submit their abstracts also to the conference, which begins the day after the pre-conference. More information on the conference call for papers here.
