Women in Engineering and Technology Research - International Conference 

26-27 October 2007 - Palais du Luxembourg, Paris, France


This international conference is organized within the framework of the PROMETEA project, by the French members of the consortium: Ecole Normale Supérieure de Cachan (ENS Cachan), Institut National de Sciences Appliquées de Lyon (INSA Lyon), the Conference of the Heads of French Engineering Schools (CDEFI) and the association ECEPIE. PROMETEA "Empowering Women Engineers in Industrial and Academic Research" is a research project funded by the European Commission under FP6 from November 2005 to December 2007.


The conference is supported by the European Commission, the Regional Government of Ile de France and promoted by the French Ministry of Higher Education and Research.


The objective of the conference is to gather specialists to exchange on gender issues in engineering and technology research careers and bring new perspectives on engineering and technology research in itself.


On October 26 and 27, the conference will be structured around five plenary sessions devoted to specific themes. Papers and posters will be presented in each session.


Scholars who work on the sessions topics are invited to submit abstracts or posters to bring other perspectives and/or create a debate. Research through case studies, comparative methodology, pluridisciplinary approaches, new methodologies is highly appreciated. Young promising scholars are strongly encouraged to submit abstracts or posters. 


Additionally to these five sessions, we will offer a roundtable to bring together men and women working in engineering and technology research, students who plan to become researchers, people responsible for research policies, researchers on gender and research. Two networking sessions are also planned. Proceedings will be published after the conference; authors of accepted papers will be invited to send a full paper. 


Conference languages are English and French
