Talks at this conferenceAdd a talk
This interdisciplinary conference seeks to explore the interplay between human, ethical, social, cultural, and political values, on the one hand, and science, technology, engineering, and medical research and practice, on the other hand. We invite presentations that seek not only to understand how values and science have and do influence one another, but also how they must and should influence one another (as well as types of influence that should be avoided). From this background, presentations that explore the relationship between science and the public and the relationship between science and social justice are also welcome. Finally, this conference ultimately seeks to promoting ethically responsible and socially beneficial scientific research and technological innovation, and critical reflection about the influence of science, technology, and medicine on our values, culture, practices, and worldviews.
This 10th annual conference will include a session celebrating 10 years of the VMST conference and the 10th anniversary of the founding of the Center.
