The program for the 2021 biennial conference of the International Society
for the History, Philosophy and Social Studies of Biology (ISHPSSB) is now
available, at:

https://meetings.cshl.edu/posters/ish21/ISH2021_AgendaProgram.pdf

Taking place from 13-20 July, and hosted virtually by Cold Spring Harbor
Laboratory on Zoom and Slack, the conference will bring together hundreds
of scholars from across the disciplines, around the world (36 countries and
counting), and at all career stages for five days of live talks and
discussions exploring all aspects of biology, past and present.  Plenary
panels will consider Darwin's DESCENT OF MAN 150 years after its
publication; the Bermuda Principles (for open sharing of sequencing data)
25 years after their launch; and the "viral vulnerability" which has
hastened the arrival of big online meetings like this one.

A range of opportunities for the informal learning and exchange which can
make in-person conferences so rewarding have been developed, including
skill-and-community-building sessions, "happy office hours" (an online
version of the conversational mixing that takes place at coffee breaks),
and a virtual banquet (with prizes for the most phylogenetically diverse
dish/menu, the most sustainable dish/menu, and the dish/menu that best
captures the Society's spirit of interdiscplinary venture).  The recording
and -- until 31 July -- archiving of a number of sessions will reduce the
scope for missing out on interesting talks because of schedule clashes,
while also helping colleagues in disparate time zones participate without
having to get up in the middle of the night.

More information about the conference can be found at

reduced registration fees, including significantly reduced fees for
participants from low- and middle-income countries, can be found at
