The History of Science Society 2008 Annual meeting will be held at the Omni William Penn hotel in Pittsburgh, PA from 6-9 November 2008. It will be a joint meeting with the Philosophy of Science Association (PSA).

How to Get the Most Out of the HSS Meeting

HSS Executive Director Jay Malone and GECC Co-Chair Jacqueline Wernimont have put together a guide for first-time HSS attendees (or anyone needing a refresher on how to navigate the HSS meeting).  Click on the page link to the right or click here.

Free Registration – Volunteer Opportunity

Graduate students are invited to volunteer at the HSS registration desk for 4.5 hours and have their registration fee waived. You will still be responsible for paying for dinner, hotel, transportation, and all incidentals, but working for HSS during the Meeting will earn you free registration. Contact Matthew White in the HSS office at matt@hssonline.org for more information.
