Here, the sciences are broadly defined, including but not limited to disciplines such as cognitive science, psychology, linguistics, computer science, statistics, mathematics, biology, physics, and medical science.

We propose that ethnographic and science-based approaches can complement each other, producing insights that might be difficult to achieve otherwise. However, we acknowledge the difficulties associated with such complementary work. For our first official symposium, we welcome proposals on any topic that aligns with the aims and themes of the Study Group. In particular, we invite contributions that combine ethnographic and science-based approaches, explore the issues involved in such endeavors, or present reflective discussions on relevant theories and methodologies.
