Technology and Innovation
Society for Philosophy and Technology
19th Biennial Meeting
July 2-6, 2015
International Academic Exchange Center of Northeastern University
We warmly invite participants to the 19th SPT Biennial Meeting, which will be hosted jointly by the Research Center for Philosophy of Science and Technology, Northeastern University, and the Chinese Society for Dialectics of Nature/Philosophy of Nature, Science and Technology, in Shenyang, China. It is hoped that participants will share their views of recent developments in relevant research fields concerned with technology.
The theme for this meeting is “Technology and Innovation”. It responds to some remarkable and interesting outcomes in the philosophy of technology research. Innovation has been a big theme in public discussions, and more and more scholars are investigating the relationship between innovation and science, technology, etc., and thinking about the co-production of science, technology, engineering and innovation from the perspective of philosophy. It is thus particularly worthy of discussion as a central theme in the SPT biennial meeting.
The 19th meeting provides a forum to explore responses across the broad range of disciplinary perspectives found within science, technology, engineering and innovation studies. Papers are encouraged exploring diverse aspects of the theme from ontology, epistemology, methodology, axiology, and praxis. The usual themes on philosophy of technology such as Biology, Information, Nano, Cognition, Sustainability, etc. are also warmly welcomed.

2015 Asia-Pacific STS Network Biennial Conference
Disasters, Controversies and Public Engagement
APSTSN is pleased to announce the Call for Papers for the biennial conference, to be held in
Kaohsiung, Taiwan, Oct 1st~4 th , 2015.
Over the past several years, the Asia-Pacific has experienced disasters on various scales and severity, often compounded by technological system failures, such as the 311 earthquake and the Fukushima nuclear disaster in Japan, the Sowel ferry disaster in Korea, and the propene explosion in Kaohsiung, Taiwan. In addition, recent scandals regarding food safety in Taiwan and China have created a sense of urgency. These disasters and threats have brought major controversies over how to ensure a safe future in a risk society, and they have also drawn people from different sectors to participate in the discussion. Most importantly, the public has become even more critical in shaping the climate of civil and policy making opinions. Confronting these disasters, how do we mobilize and empower the public to engage in the improvement of a technological society in order to increase our resilience in the face of giant disasters?
Confirmed keynote speakers and panelists
Deborah Bird Rose, University of New South Wales, Australia
Tadashi Kobayashi, Osaka University, Japan
Kuei-Tien Chou, National Taiwan University, Taiwan
Hee-Je Bak, Kyung Hee University, Korea
Sulfikar Amir, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore
