## 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

Target themes include:

* Science, Technology, and Social Justice
