The BSHS is not planning to hold an annual conference in either 2012 (the Three Societies Meeting will be held in Philadelphia) or 2013 (the 24th International Congress for the History of Science, Technology and Medicine will be held in Manchester).

BSHS Programmes Committee therefore seeks offers from individuals and departments to organize smaller themed and one-day conferences in 2012 and 2013. Conferences may be themed on any aspect of the history of science, broadly defined. Organizers of approved conferences will receive organizational support and advice from BSHS Programmes Committee and the BSHS will subsidize student attendance. Eligible attendees will be able to apply for support for travel to these conferences from the Butler-Eyles Fund.

The BSHS Programmes Committee also invites proposals for joint conferences with other organizations and applications for sponsorship of meetings.
