ISHPSSB & ABFHiB 2017 Meeting

General Information

Conference structure

The aim of this meeting is the presentation and discussion of research contributions concerning the history, philosophy and social studies of Biology. Mature research contributions should be submitted for oral presentation. Preliminary work (or work-in-progress) should be presented in the form of posters. Posters are also suggested for those who do not feel comfortable in making an oral presentation in English.

Notice that only papers addressing historical, philosophical and social features of Biology can be accepted for presentation. Contributions on any branch of Biology that do not address those standpoints, or contributions to the history, philosophy and social studies of other sciences, are outside the scope of this conference. Interdisciplinary approaches and papers tackling educational issues of history, philosophy and social studies of Biology are welcome.  

Most of the conference program is devoted to oral communication sessions, of two types: special organized sessions proposed by the participants; and sessions organized by the program committee. There are also a few plenary sessions with invited keynote speakers; poster presentation sessions; and several special meetings.

The meeting will begin on July 16th (Sunday), with registration and welcome cocktail. From July 17th (Monday) to July 21st (Friday) there will be nearly two hundred sessions.

All communication sessions include three papers and have the same duration: 90 minutes. Each speaker should present her/his paper in 20 minutes, reserving 10 minutes for discussion.

Due to the international scope of the conference, all papers should be presented in English, independently of the nationality of the speaker.

Participation rule: the simple rule of two.  Any individual can appear at most twice on the program (speaker, coauthor, commentator, roundtable participant, poster author) in addition to serving as a session chair.

Suggestion of open sessions posted at the Conference Board: beginning on August 1st 2016.

Submission of sessions, papers and posters should follow the detailed proposal guidelines, and should be submitted from October 1st 2016 to January 15th 2017.
