TO SUBMIT A PAPER, please use this special portal for SIC papers:

The DEADLINE for submissions is Friday 30 November 2012.

 THEMES suggested by the SIC Board:

Trade and transfer of instruments. This is could be between individuals, manufacturers, retailers, institutions, countries, Europe and the Americas, or other pairings.   We encourage people who could not travel to Rio de Janeiro to speak on this topic in Manchester.

Time.  Acceptable papers can be about any kind of scientific instrument related to time measuring, time finding, time recording, time and work, time and music, time and psychology, time and navigation, time in sports, or any other topic involving time-associated instruments.

Other topics are also welcome as long as they concern the history of scientific instruments, preservation, conservation, or documentation of collections of instruments, or their use within the wider disciplines related to scientific heritage and the history of science.

The SIC especially welcomes papers from students and young scholars and hopes to be able to offer a few modest travel grants to such to attend the 2013 meeting and deliver a paper.
