The University of Toronto's History and Philosophy of Science Undergraduate Society (HPSUS) is excited to announce the Seventh International Undergraduate Research Conference on Science, Technology, Medicine, and Society! This year's theme for the conference is Science and Public Welfare, and will feature a talk from keynote speaker Erika Dyck, Canada Research Chair in the History of Medicine at the University of Saskatchewan.
The Seventh International Undergraduate Research Conference on Science, Technology, Medicine, and Society will showcase student submissions that examine the interactions between science and public welfare. Topics may include but are not limited to: climate science, agricultural science, medical technologies, mental health diagnoses, and artificial intelligence (AI). We also invite submissions on other issues related to Science, Technology, and Medicine (STM) in historical and contemporary contexts throughout the world. As an interdisciplinary gathering, we encourage students to submit papers from across the arts, humanities, social sciences and natural sciences.
This conference was started at DePauw in 2017, and DePauw hosted the first four of these conferences on Science, Technology, Medicine and Society. Since then, Vassar College held it in 2021, and University of Toronto hosted it in 2022 and is hosting it (virtually) in 2023.
