The Latin American Conference on Social Studies of Science and Technology (ESOCITE) will be celebrated in Brazil in the city of Curitiba, between 25 and 28 July 2016. This issue is of special importance because in addition to celebrate symbolically the age of social studies of science and technology in Latin America, will be the first event in which the ESOCITE will present legally formalized.

Although this is a minor factor before the reality of concrete articulation through networks, research groups, graduate programs and publications, which occurred over the years, it is significant to point out the new levels of institutionalization in the present and indicate potential future development.

This time of institutional formalization encourages us to reflect on the many research groups from several decades ago, developed the thought of Science, Technology and Society (STS) in the region, calls us to examine the proliferation of perspectives and approaches in this and challenges us to think about the different CTS field of possible configurations in the future.

To discuss these and other issues, ESOCITE 21 Years: Trajectories plurals between past and future , inaugural conference will be held, round tables, symposiums organized in themes and thematic sessions.
