ISHPSSB & ABFHiB 2017 Meeting

Submission of papers


Submissions are now closed.

The 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 very much a place where people are welcome to present works in progress (oral or poster). Posters can be a good option also for those who do not feel comfortable in making an oral presentation in English.

The submission of a poster 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. Individuals may submit only one Poster.

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. 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.

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).

* 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 poster 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.
