Where will future Annual Meetings be held?
The History of Science Society plans the annual meetings well in advance. Our 2000 Annual Meeting will be held 2-5 November in beautiful Vancouver, BC. In 2001 we will meet 8-11 November in the mile-high city, Denver, CO. In 2002, our annual meeting will be held in Milwaukee, WI 7-10 November.
My paper has been accepted for the Annual Meeting. Do I still need to register and pay registration fees?
Yes. Everyone planning on attending the Annual Meeting must register.
My paper has been accepted for presentation at the Annual Meeting. What length should it be?
Paper length is determined by which time slot your paper has been assigned. If your paper is in the 9:00 a.m. - 11:45 a.m. time slot you will be allotted 30 minutes for your presentation, regardless of the number of session participants. You may choose to spend the entire 30 minutes presenting your paper or use only 25 minutes and reserve the remaining five minutes for questions. If you are in the 1:30 p.m. - 3:10 p.m. time slot, you should prepare your presentation for 25 minutes. You may choose to use the entire time for your paper or instead use 20 minutes for your paper and reserve the remaining time to field questions. If your paper is assigned to the 3:30 p.m. - 5:30 p.m. session, you will have 30 minutes. You may choose to use the entire time for your paper or instead use 25 minutes for your paper and reserve the remaining time for questions. Session commentators have the same amount of time for their comments as do session participants.
Are there funds available to meet expenses for travel to the Annual Meeting?
Yes, the HSS Executive Office administers the HSS Travel Grant Program pending funding approval from NSF. Travel Grants are only available to graduate students and independent scholars who appear on the meeting program. Eligibility is restricted to HSS members and preference is given to eligible members who did not receive funding last year. The use of these funds is restricted to travel expenses acquired from travel to the Annual Meeting. We require that awardees use our official travel agency and all foreign travel must be conducted on a US Flagship air carrier. If our funding is renewed, 2000 Travel Grant Applications will be due in September.
I'm a graduate student planning on attending the Annual Meeting but the hotel rates seem out of my budget. Are there any funds available to cover hotel costs?
No, the HSS does not offer any funds to cover hotel costs. However, you might be interested in checking our Need a Roommate? Web page that will be available in July. This page provides a listing of persons seeking shared accommodations at the Annual Meeting.
