Call for Abstracts EASST-4S 2024

Submissions can be made until February 12th (23:59 CEST), only via the online forms on the conference website, not via email. We are very much looking forward to receiving your proposals. 

Submit an abstract to an Open Panel 

Directly go the webpage to submit your proposal and find details on terms and requirements. 

Browse through the online panel list to find a panel suitable to you, and propose directly to that panel. There are two types of Open Panels: 

Please note that the Call for Open Panels had an overwhelming response and over 390 panels were accepted. This may mean that panels may need to be limited in the number of sessions they contain, depending on the number of paper proposals received. 

Making & Doing, Workshops, Roundtables, Closed Panels and Meet-Ups 
Directly go the webpage to submit your proposal and find details on terms and requirements. 

Making & Doing encourages STS researchers to share work that extends beyond the academic paper or book. Therefore, we invite submissions of experimental work and exploratory practices that are best presented interactively, outside of a traditional panel format. Contributions that take up speculative, participatory, and/or reflexive approaches to the study of science, technology and society, and that experiment with modes of knowledge production, expression and travel are particularly welcomed.  

Workshops are conceptualized as practical events containing collective research activities, guided interactions and free-format exchanges leading to specific public outputs. A workshop may have up to two 90-minute sessions (due to high attendance and capacity restrictions, we may need to reduce this to one session only).  

Roundtables bring together a group of scholars to discusses themes or issues of general scholarly interest in front of (and subsequently with) an audience for the duration of a single 90-minute session. While a roundtable can include short (5-10 minute) contributions, the aim is to create a lively debate rather than focus on any one presenter.  

Closed Panels are pre-organized panels with invited presenters. A closed panel needs to be restricted to a single 90-minute session and is expected to contain 4-6 paper abstracts.  

Meet-Ups are less formal social gatherings or meetings around research communities, publishing communities, shared approaches, research topics, or regional foci. Most meet-ups will be allocated 1-hour slots during lunch breaks, but we will accept a limited number of requests for longer sessions 

Decisions on the proposals will be communicated by 4 March 2024. For more information, visit the conference website
