Prometea Conference: Call for Papers

Maison de l’UNESCO, Paris
26-27 November, 2009

“The scientific and technological careers of women and men
Private temporalities, professional temporalities; public and corporate policies”

In the wake of the 2007 International PROMETEA conference, the participants expressed the desire to reflect on the question of the scientific and technological careers of women and to pursue the dialogue between Human and Social Sciences on the one hand, and the preoccupations and reality of corporate life on the other hand.

The 2009 Prometea conference will attempt to meet this demand.

1- To create opportunities of exchange between researchers in HSS and corporate managers

2- To take stock of the situation of women in these jobs and evaluate the impact of public policies and of new corporate practices on their careers: more flexibility, development of teleworking, blurring of the border line between private life and work, gender-neutral parental leaves, day care services

3- To encourage the emergence of new social models better adapted to the reality of contemporary social life. Also to consider new paths for men in order to make all jobs and functions equally accessible to women and men

Submission of papers

The researchers who intend to present an oral communication (around 10 minutes) are invited to send on line to the Scientific Committee a 5000-sign abstract before April 15th, 2009. This abstract will include, apart from the description of the content of the study, information about the methodology used and some bibliographical references. All researchers concerned will be told before June 30th, 2009 whether their proposal has been selected. Then the full papers will have to be sent to the Scientific Committee before October 1st, 2009.
