This conference will address a range of critically important themes in the various fields that address the complex and subtle relationships among technology, knowledge and society.
We are inviting proposals for paper presentations, workshops/interactive sessions, posters/exhibits, or colloquia (See Proposal Types) addressing technology, knowledge, and society through one of the following themes:
|Technologies for Human Use||Technologies in Community|
|Technologies for Learning||Technologies for Common Knowledge|
|Special Focus for 2015: Big Data and the Politics of Participation in a Digital Age|
Proposal ideas that extend beyond these thematic areas will also be considered. For more information about the ideas and themes underlying this community, see Our Focus.
We also offer participation options for those individuals who cannot attend the conference. Authors who wish to submit an article for potential publication in the Technology Journal may submit a Proposal for Article Submission, while all members of the knowledge community with an accepted proposal may submit an online presentation to the knowledge community YouTube channel.
The University of California was chartered in 1868 and its flagship campus - envisioned as a "City of Learning" - was established at Berkeley, on San Francisco Bay. Entering its eleventh year, the Technology, Knowledge and Society Conference travels to UC Berkeley's Clark Kerr Conference Center to draw from its unique location in an area famous for high-tech innovation and development.
Berkeley is a city with a small population and a big reputation, known around the globe as a center for academic achievement, scientific exploration, free speech, and the arts. UC Berkeley has the largest number of highly ranked graduate programs in the United States and its students have been awarded more Graduate Research Fellowships from the National Science Foundation than those of any other university. The conference will draw from local and international researchers and practitioners to create a diverse and interdisciplinary program.
