INES Congress ''Challenges for Science and Engineering in the 21st
INTERNATIONAL NETWORK OF ENGINEERS AND SCIENTISTS
FOR GLOBAL RESPONSIBILITY
Following the "First Announcement" of the INES Congress ''Challenges for
Science and Engineering in the 21st Century'' which I mailed to you
earlier this year, please allow me to send to you today the "Second
Announcement", the most recent and revised version of the Programme of
this Congress, including all organisational details needed.
Please do not hesitate to contact me for any questions you might have
with regard to this event.
CHALLENGES FOR SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING in the 21st century
Stockholm, Sweden, 14-18 June 2000
THE CONFERENCE IS ORGANIZED BY THE
International Network of Engineers and Scientists for Global
in cooperation with major organizations in the fields of science and
Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences (KVA, Stockholm),
Royal Institute of Technology (KTH, Stockholm),
Swedish Council for Planning and Coordination of Research (FRN).
European Physical Society (EPS, Muelhouse),
International Federation of Commercial, Clerical, Professional and
Technical Employees (FIET, Geneva),
Swedish Engineers and Scientists for Nuclear Disarmament(SEANA),
The Swedish Pugwash Group; International Architects/Designers/Planners
for Social Responsibility (ArcPeace).
THE BEGINNING OF A NEW MILLENIUM
is an opportunity for reflection and looking forward. This is
particularly true for us, in science and engineering. This conference
will serve the purpose of providing analysis and perspectives, and
creating visions for the future role of science and engineering at the
turn of the millenium.
The background is demanding: Since its institution, science has been a
major force in society. Science has expanded our worldview, and at the
same time narrowed it. Technology has changed societies, lifestyles and
conditions in many spheres, most importantly in war fighting, economy
and health. Science and technology have been forces in their own right,
but have also been exploited by political, economic and military power.
Already when the modern scientific project was set into motion 400 years
ago by Galilee, Descartes and Bacon, its role in society was intended.
The intention may have been to seek knowledge for its own sake or to
improve living conditions of fellow human beings; but science has led us
to a world where the technology of war fighting is capable of
annihilating mankind, where large scale manipulation of the global
atmosphere takes place, and where exploitation of nature threatens to
undermine the living conditions for future generations. The situation
prompts us to examine the value basis and motivation of science and
scientists and to analyze the social institutions and structures in
which science and technology are being pursued. Even more important, the
situation challenges individuals and institutions of science and
engineering to reevaluate and clarify their intentions, to change them
in such a way that they might systematically contribute to the
development of a world of justice, a world without war, where basic
human needs are met, a world with a flourishing natural environment: to
a sustainable world in the next millenium.
WHO IS THE AUDIENCE?
The conference intends to promote a wide dialogue between different
actors in science and engineering: individuals, professional societies,
institutions, international associations, concerned non-governmental
organizations, governments, and industrial companies. It will follow up
on the results of the UNESCO World Science Conference in Budapest in
June 1999, and the Second Interdisciplinary Conference on the Evolution
of World Order (WOC) in Toronto, also in June 1999.
THE FORMAT OF THE CONFERENCE
is meant to embody the challenges for science and engineering:
* Some 20 workshops will be the main working stages of the conference.
The workshops will facilitate common search and clarification using
disciplinary competence and cross-disciplinary approaches. They are
centered on themes in four distinct areas:
A. Developing the culture of science and engineering;
B. Science and engineering for a finite world;
C. Humanizing the economy in a global context;
D. Steps towards comprehensive security and lasting peace.
* The workshops allow for ten hours of presentation and discussion. They
may include an afternoon excursion to a site connected to their subject.
All workshop groups of a theme area will come together for a two-hour
meeting to discuss subjects of common interest.
* The plenary presentations will highlight prominent subjects and draw
connections between the essential areas.
* The conference participants willbring in a broad spectrum of
contributions during the poster session. Inaddition, the workshop
conveners will display a summary of their workshop at the poster
* For special audiences, pre-conferences will be held on the day before
THE OUTREACH TO THE PUBLIC
will be promoted through public lectures during the conference and
through publications on the conference INTERNET site: www.ines2000.org
The relation between science and society in different world regions is a
core theme in several workshops.
THE CONFERENCE VENUE
is the campus of the Royal Institute of Technology, Valhallav=E4gen 79,
Stockholm. Part of the conference will be held at the premises of the
Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, Lilla Frescativ=E4gen 4, Stockholm.
The pre-conferences will be held in Uppsala at various locations.
* Participants and organizations are invited to submit papers to the
conference with a written text of 1000 - 2000 words. If the text is
longer, an abstract or shortened version should be submitted as well.
Papers submitted before the conference will be linked to the conference
web page, to facilitate discussion and to allow participants to prepare
themselves. At the conference, these papers will be on display.
* Contributors are invited to prepare posters that give essential
findings and illustrations for presentation at the poster session.
Please inform the Conference Secretariat about your intention to produce
a poster, so that poster space may be reserved.
* No oral presentation of submitted papers will be possible in the
plenary sessions and in the workshops. Authors are encouraged to bring
copies of their papers for distribution during the conference.
IT IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED TO COMMUNICATE DISCUSSION PAPERS AND
ABSTRACTS TO THE CONFERENCE SECRETARIAT BY E-MAIL.
