Position papers that take stock of the existing trajectories and future possibilities of scholarship in the rhetoric of STeM (science, technology, and medicine) will be discussed at the pre-conference. Drafts of these papers are available for download (see the "What's in Our Repertoire?" and "Horizon of Possibility" pages for download links). Pre-conference participants are asked to read all position papers ahead of time to ensure maximum discussion time during the conference. After the pre-conference, responses to these position papers will be posted here. Edited position papers and round table reports will appear in a special forum of POROI in 2013.
