This Sixth International Conference on Technology, Knowledge and Society examines a range of critically important themes in the various fields that address the complex and subtle relationships between technology, knowledge and society. The Conference is cross-disciplinary in scope, a meeting point for technologists with a concern for the social and for social scientists with a concern for the technological. The focus is primarily, but not exclusively, on information and communications technologies.
The Technology Conference is held annually in different locations around the world. The Conference was inaugurated in February 2005 at the University of California, Berkeley, USA. It was held in Hyderabad, India in December 2005; Cambridge University, Cambridge, UK in 2007; Northeastern University, Boston, USA in 2008 and in Huntsville, USA in 2009. We are pleased to hold this year's Conference at the Freie Universität Berlin, Germany. In 2011, the conference will be held in Bilbao, Spain.

In 2011, the Technology Conference will be held 25-27 March at the University of the Basque Country, Bilbao, Spain. Bilbao is the historic capital of the Biscay province and is an important economic and cultural center. The city is perhaps best know internationally for its critically acclaimed Guggenheim Museum, designed by Frank Gehry.
