Call for abstracts - CLOSED

The ISHPSSB meetings are known for bringing together scholars in humanities interacting with the life sciences, notably historians, philosophers, and social scientists, but also scientists themselves involved in such life sciences. The submission of organized sessions and individual papers on any topic within the society’s scope is welcome. We also encourage the submission of posters.

  • Submissions close:  31st January, 2015 - CLOSED

We especially encourage organized session submissions, and this year the program committee has introduced a new policy of rolling acceptances for organized session submissions.  This will benefit those of you who would like to plan your ISHPSSB travel early, and will ensure the timely completion of the overall program for conference.  While all session types may be submitted from 1st October, 2014, only organized sessions will benefit from the rolling acceptance policy. The earlier you submit an organized session, the earlier you will hear from us about acceptance, and the more effective choice you will have as to the scheduling of your session. Please use the ISHSSB 2015 General Bulletin Board to post ideas for organized sessions and to coordinate with others looking to do so. 

As with past meetings, ISHPSSB 2015 aims at facilitating the exchange of research ideas and results across a range of fields, while fostering informal, co-operative exchanges and on-going collaborations among a variety of international scholars. It is our goal to develop a program that will allow maximal interactions, while also giving people the chance to present their ideas to their colleagues.
