Call for Meeting Sites: ICOHTEC Symposium 2018 or 2019
ICOHTEC invites proposals for sites and local organizers for its 2018 or 2019 annual symposium. Since 1968, when ICOHTEC was founded, we have organized 43 symposia in various parts of Europe but also in Japan, the United States, Mexico, China, Canada, and Israel. In 2016, the meeting of about 230 participants was held at the University of Porto, Portugal, and the next symposium will take place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, as a part of the of the 25th International Congress of the History of Science and Technology (ICHST), which will be organised on 23-29 July 2017.
Our symposia had been held generally during the summer months, most often between mid-July and mid-August. Our practice is that the host, Local Organizing Committee, is responsible for the financial side of the symposium, providing facilities for panels and plenary sessions, offering refreshments in coffee breaks and receptions, as well as organizing excursions. All arrangements are being supervised by the ICOHTEC Board, which also takes care of the scientific programme of the symposium.
The deadline for preliminary proposals is 16 January 2017. Please, send your proposal including information on the local host institutions, site, venue, accommodation, flight connections and travel options from airports as well as a preliminary social programme containing also receptions and excursions via email to the ICOHTEC’s President Timo Myllyntaus at email@example.com. Should you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at any time.
