ISHPSSB & ABFHiB 2017 Meeting

Submission of papers

Individual oral paper

Submissions are now closed.

Notice that an "individual oral paper" can have two or more authors; the name merely indicates that this is a communication proposed individually, that is, not making part of an organized session.

This submission format involves submitting an individual paper that requires participant name, affiliation, email, and a title and  250-500 words abstract. Full names, affiliation and email of co-authors (if any) is also required. The submission should be made by the person who will present the paper at the meeting. The paper presentation must be no more than 20 minutes in length, with additional 10 minutes for discussion.  Individual Paper submissions will be grouped by the Program Committee and scheduled into 90 minutes sessions. Individuals may submit only one Individual Paper. Before submitting your individual paper, you might benefit from looking at the Conference Board to check if there is a proposal of an Organized Session where your contribution might fit.

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

Other submission requirements.  All submissions will require the completion of a checklist featuring themes and topics that will assist the program chairs in evaluating and scheduling the submission. We encourage session organizers to attend especially to considerations of interdisciplinarity and diversity, both of which are valued by the ISHPSSB community.

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.    

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

Before opening the submission form, you should prepare a file containing all the information you will need:

* Your personal information, for pre-registration: Full name; E-mail; Affiliation; Status (student, researcher, professor, etc.); your password (at least 8 characters, including both letters and numbers).

* Paper title and  250-500 words abstract; full names, affiliations, and emails of co-authors (if any).

* Themes and topics of the paper.

If you have NOT made your pre-registration, you should follow this link: pre-registration form.

If you have already made your pre-registration, you should fill the individual paper submission form.  When you click submit a form, whether for an oral presentation, poster, or session, Google Drive opens a window with text stating that the submission was done. The system is very secure and therefore we do not use sending confirmation e-mails.

The pre-registration form will be available at this page from October 1st 2016 to April 30th 2017; the individual paper submission form will be available from October 1st 2016 to January 25th 2017 - now closed.
