Fifth Edition of Conferencia PRISMA to Celebrate Queer Scientists this November


Conferencia PRISMA 2023, organized in Madrid in November last year by PRISMA, the Spanish Association for LGBTIQA+ people in Science, Technology and Innovation, with the support of the IEEE Photonics Society and in collaboration with Universidad Autónoma de Madrid and Universidad Rey Juan Carlos I, attracted around 50 attendees who came together to learn from each other, present their work, and network.

Some of the highlights of the conference were Kevin Guyan’s keynote on “Queer Data: Who Counts”, and Noemí Trujillos keynote on the “(In)visible Bias of Biphobia and Femmephobia”, the opening performance “EcoDrag: the End of the Carnivorous Macho” by the drag performers Erik Jarry and Monsieur Baguette, and the two PRISMA-led workshops on “Experiences in Organizing LGBTIQA+ Affinity Groups in Corporations and Research Centers” (by Raul Toran and Leonel Velázquez) and “Queer Affect: Workshop on Non-Monogamy” (by Alicia Tamarit). The conference also provided a space for more than 30 LGBTIQA+ professionals in Science, Technology, and Innovation to present their work.

This year’s Conferencia PRISMA is slated to take place on November 14-16 and will be hosted in Zaragoza, Spain, in collaboration with the University of Zaragoza. As in previous editions, we are cordially inviting queer people in Science, Technology, and Innovation to present their work as talks and poster presentations. We will also organize keynotes, workshops, and round tables on a series of topics, for example, a deep dive into the history of unions, labor movements, and their relationship to LGBTIQA+ issues.
