The History of Science Society will hold its 2007 Annual Meeting in Arlington, Virginia, across the Potomac River from Washington, D.C., from Thursday, 1 November through Sunday, 4 November 2007. Proposals for sessions and contributed papers must be submitted by 2 April 2007. Note that the deadline for the submission of paper proposals that are part of a session is 9 April 2007. Proposals submitted after these dates will not be accepted.
HSS members are asked to circulate this announcement to colleagues who may be interested in presenting a paper at the Annual Meeting (membership in HSS is not required, but all participants must register for the conference).
Submissions on all topics are requested. Proposals must be submitted via the HSS Web site (http://www.hssonline.org) or on the annual meeting proposal forms that are available from the HSS Executive Office (see contact information, below). Only one proposal per person may be submitted. In order to ensure broad involvement, an individual may appear only once on the program, and prior participation at the 2005 or 2006 meetings will be taken into consideration. Quality of the proposals, however, is paramount.
Abstracts should be no longer than 250 words; those fewer than 100 words will not receive serious consideration. Preference will be given to session proposals that include: a mix of men and women; diversity of institutional affiliations; and/or a balance of professional ranks (e.g., mixing senior scholars with junior scholars and graduate students). Individuals who are interested in chairing a session in lieu of presenting a paper are encouraged to submit this information on the submission form. Individuals are also asked to identify any special audio-visual needs.
Before submitting a proposal, it is recommended that individuals read the “Guidelines for Selecting Papers and Sessions” prepared by the Committee on Meetings and Program. These guidelines will be used in evaluating session and paper proposals. The 2007 program co-chairs are Marsha Richmond (Wayne State University) and Anita Guerrini (University of California, Santa Barbara).
