Assist-UK 2019 Conference, Alliance Manchester Business School,
The University of Manchester, Manchester, UK, September 9th-10th
The 2019 Conference of the Association is a chance for members and friends to gather and share their current and planned work, and examine the state of the art and future contributions of theoretical and practice-based work in STIS as new challenges and opportunities arise for rethinking our approach to substantive, methodological and policy-related developments.
There will be a mixture of paper and panel sessions, plenary and social sessions. The conference will also serve as the formal annual meeting of the Association. Non-member attendees, early career and doctoral researchers, and practitioners, are also most welcome.
The meeting begins with registration from 12:00 pm on Sept 9th, with the first Plenary at 13:00. It will close after lunch on Sept 10th. Preliminary programme of papers appears below.
We are delighted to confirm that the keynote speakers for the conference will be:
Professor of Architectural Theory at the University of Manchester
The Good Experiment: How Space Matters for Nanoscience
Claire Marris, Reader, Centre for Food Policy, City University
Jane Calvert, Professor of Science and Technology Studies, University of Edinburgh
