ICOHTEC Symposium, Glasgow, Scotland 2-7 August 2011
"Consumer Choice and Technology"
The deadline for submitting presentation proposals for ICOHTEC's 38th Symposium in Glasgow has been extended to Tuesday 15 February (24:00 GMT + 1 h). The link to the electronic proposal submission form can be found atwww.icohtec.org/annual-meeting/cfp-system/2011/index.php
The aim is to examine the interaction of technology and consumer behaviour in a historical perspective; especially to focus on factors steering consumption and how consumers by their choices have influenced technological development in the past. A transition from agrarian society to consumer society was one of the epochmaking phases in human history that can be studied from various aspects and contexts.
