The Fourth International Workshop on Socio-gerontechnology – June the 29th

Socio-gerontechnology network of researchers share an interest in exploring the entanglements of ageing and technologies. The network seeks to strengthen critical and reflexive thinking and research by emphasizing the complex and co-constitutive relationship between ageing, technology and society. It brings together international scholars from a variety of disciplinary background (i.e. critical and cultural gerontology, science and technology studies (STS), sociology, anthropology, age studies, HCI and education) and provides a forum for productive, open and supportive exchange and dialogue, with the aim of fostering curiosity, reflexivity and enthusiasm for researching the topic.

Conference Reviews from our members

PyData London 2019 – review on 21st July 2019

The nice part about the conference is that they offer ticket scholarships for underrepresented groups in tech and women are more than welcome to apply. The organizers pointed out that it would be great to see more women join the PyData community. The application for the scholarship is quite simple: there is only a one page form to fill up  -> see

I also have only good things to say about the organizers, who try to make everyone feel as welcome and included as possible. We had a diversity lunch event this year and we had free childcare and a nursing room on the premises as well!
