Science and Human Rights Conference: Call for Session Proposals

The AAAS Science and Human Rights Coalition, a network of scientific and engineering membership organizations that recognize a role for science and scientists in human rights, invites proposals for its upcoming conference in Washington, DC, October 23-25, 2019. Marking the Coalition’s tenth anniversary and looking forward to the next ten years, participants will learn from each other’s successes and challenges, identify emerging needs and opportunities, and help set the agenda for future collaborative action and impact.

The Conference Host Committee invites session proposals that reveal innovative developments and applications in science and technology that can support the efforts of human rights practitioners, as well as those that tackle human rights challenges associated with the conduct of science and application of technology. Proposals from frontline human rights defenders, students and early career individuals are especially welcome.
