I’ve been asked to create panels for the upcoming International Conference on Thermodynamics 2.0. The conference aims to bring natural and social sciences closer. It will take place at Worcester Polytechnic Institute, Massachusetts, USA from June 22-24, 2020.

I’m calling the panel(s) Energy, Institutions and Society. I’m looking for research that connects energy to the structure of human society. Both theoretical and empirical contributions are welcome.

If you are interested, please send a title and abstract to me at blairfix@gmail.com. The deadline is February 1, 2020.
