ALL DISCIPLINES: 20th Heidelberger Science Slam

Where? Karlstorbahnhof, Am Karlstor, 69117 Heidelberg
When? 16 July 2020, 7pm

In a relaxed environment, young researchers present their research results, some of which they have been researching for years. The aim is to transfer enthusiasm for their own topic to the audience in ten minutes - in a way that is easy to understand, as creative and exciting as possible.

The Science Slam is a competition consisting of entertaining and comprehensible presentations to a lay audience. The Science Slam brings science out of the laboratories and libraries and into real life. It goes without saying that such a competition does not take place at the university, but on a big stage. In the end, it is not a jury that decides who has delivered the best slam, but you - the audience. So: Applause, applause and free slam at the Heidelberg Science Slam!

VARIOUS DISCIPLINES: Latin American Working Group: Call for Essays - Why Latin America Matters

Deadline: 30.08.2020

Why does Latin America matter in the global debate? What can the world learn from Latin American nations, cultures and people when faced with the challenges of the 21st century? How can the history, experiences, insights, as well as the findings from academic research and exchanges about Latin America help in analyzing the solutions to global challenges? Safeguarding humane communities and human beings in the 21st century is our common obligation, towards the creation of inclusive and sustainable environments.

This is a call for chapters to a collection of short essays addressing the questions and issues above, under the title Why Latin America Matters. The aim is to gather fresh insights in a pointed publication, making the case for the importance of Latin America on the global stage.

There is no limitation on topics but works that shed light upon cutting-edge issues and make innovative observations will be given preference for publication.

Contributions with an interdisciplinary perspective are encouraged. Essays should be between 2000 and 4500 words (not including bibliography), single spaced in Times New Roman 12pt and following APA style. Manuscripts that have co-authors (maximum 4) from several CG-universities are particularly welcome. Entries should include a short paragraph demonstrating possible relevance and, applicability, for policymakers and stakeholders.

Notice that essays focusing exclusively on COVID-19 will not be taken into consideration. We propose that Covid-19 is emphasizing current inequalities and challenges in Latin America and could be presenting opportunities for emerging social practices to be upscaled. Therefore, we would encourage reflections related with Covid-19, in the context of a range of crises, inequalities as well as opportunities for change in Latin America.

Please send your finished text, in Word-format, to the Chair of the Latin American Working Group (LAWG), Professor Soledad Garcia Ferrari, University of Edinburgh, at email [s.garcia@ed.ac.uk]. Received entries will be evaluated by an editorial committee.

SOCIAL SIENCE AND ENGINEERING (Postdoc): Artificial Intelligence and the Society of the Future

Deadline: 07.07.2020

The initiative focuses on joint, integrative research approaches in the social sciences and the engineering sciences. Against the background of the current and emerging developments in the field of “Artificial Intelligence” the Foundation wishes to support projects dealing with the development of new perspectives and insights with a view to shaping the future of society as well as technology. The aim is to enable novel project constellations and interdisciplinary cooperations in a scientific and socially highly topical area through a shift in thinking towards new perspectives and solutions.

An essential challenge and at the same time a special opportunity for the participating disciplines lies in the joint development of a specific topic and the associated research issues as well as in the necessary expansion of the respective range of methods.

The funding initiative is aimed primarily at postdoctoral researchers and professors at all career levels in the social and engineering sciences who devote themselves to the challenges of artificial intelligence and society in interdisciplinary research constellations. The integration of the humanities is welcome. In addition to a substantial, longer-term project funding, one-year planning grants can be applied for upfront.
