main rationale behind deciding to submit a poster or oral presentation
should concern the presenter's decision on what fits better the kind of
discussion your paper needs. The standard of appraisal of submissions
for ISHPSSB meeting remains as it has always been: that is, we maintain
the longstanding past practice according to which ISHPSSB meeting is

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

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
to the international scope of the conference, all papers should be presented in
English, independently of the nationality of the speaker. Notice that the
poster does not “speak by itself”; you will be required to explain your work
and to answer questions about your poster, in English.
