The paperback Bossens Yearly gives aspiring authors the chance to participate in writing competitions. As one might read from the back of the cover, viable topics include biotechnology, AI, science and society. Abstract philosophical topics are favored as well, as are futuristic contemplations. For this reason, science fiction that is based on scientific extrapolations is allowed as well. More generally formulated though, any article dealing with science, philosophy, technology, politics, and their mutual interplay can apply for a place in the Bossens Yearly.
