4S/EASST Conference 2004 A series of special events and sessions will be organised around the specific 2004 theme "PUBLIC PROOFS - SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY AND DEMOCRACY".This meeting corresponds to the urgency of the day: science and technical expertise is everywhere needed but everywhere under suspicion. The divide between, on the one hand, experts who could be trusted for their access to indisputable matters of fact and, on the other, the general public waiting for enlightenment and defining societal values, has been erased. Yet there is no sure way of providing an alternative to this state of affairs where scientists are uneasy about the new suspicions they trigger (witness the various 'Science Wars' episodes) and where administrators, politicians, activists and citizens do not know how to handle scientific expertise which no longer merits neither total confidence nor total distrust. Paris, France. 25-28 August 2004.
