Important Update on Symposium

Because we received an unexpected number of abstracts for blind review (over 80), we are currently rethinking the logistics of the symposium. We are delighted by the strong interest the symposium has generated and want to use this opportunity to foster research and interdisciplinary dialogue on futures studies in philosophy, history, and STS. We therefore need more time to organize the review process and figure out creative solutions to increase the capacity of the symposium.

New timeline:

  • Friday December 8 [UPDATED]: Decision notification

  • Friday December 15 [UPDATED]: Symposium participation confirmation to be sent by authors of accepted abstracts to organizers (automatic registration)
  • Friday January 5 [UPDATED]: Final symposium schedule and beginning of registration period for audience members
  • Friday March 30, 2018: Full draft of papers to be shared with other speakers

Many thanks for your patience!
