## Conference Description

This interdisciplinary conference seeks to explore the interplay between human, ethical, 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 can and do influence one another, but also how they should interact (as well as interactions and influences that should be avoided). Finally, we are ultimately interested in promoting ethically responsible and socially beneficial scientific research and technological innovation, the social conditions for the pursuit and appreciation of science and technology, and critical reflection about the influence of science, technology, and medicine on our values, culture, practices, and worldview.

Target themes include:

* Science, Technology, and Social Justice
* Socially-Driven and Public-Interest Science
* Values in Climate Science and Policy
* Authority of Science in Democratic Societies
* Science and Moral Imagination
* Values in Interdisciplinary Research
* Interdisciplinarity in the Study of Values in Science
* Connecting Philosophy of Science & Philosophy of Technology
* Connecting Bioethics and Philosophy of Medicine / Philosophy of Biology
* "Values in Science" in History & Sociology of Science
* Representations of Science in Pop Culture
* Imagining the Future of Science and Society through Science Fiction
* Politics and Ethics of Media Representations of Science
