Emerging Issues in Science and Society
To meet the great challenges of this century we need the best science, but also the best social and humanities research. The answers that science provides are often not enough to make the changes we need to see in the world. Only when researchers work together across disciplinary divides can we be sure we are asking the right questions.

The Emerging Issues in Science and Society (EISS) symposium is supported by the National Committee for History and Philosophy of Science at the Australian Academy of Science. Over two days, scientists will be in conversation with humanities and social scientists to generate new answers and new questions to address some of the biggest challenges of our time.

The theme for this year’s EISS is Unprecedented Science and will feature sessions on modelling COVID-19, Indigenous astronomy, the “anthropause,” and biometrics and the politics of recognition.
