ISHPSSB meets every two years, in odd-numbered 
calendar years. During the even-numbered, "off," 
years, the Society will help to publicize and 
lend its name to workshops or meetings that meet 
the following criteria. Such workshops ideally 
present the opportunity for informal discussions 
in a relaxed atmosphere, and may also offer 
formal sessions.

The Off-Year Workshop Committee will consider 
proposals for workshops that meet the criteria 
below.  Some funding for graduate student 
(ISHPSSB members only) travel to the workshops 
may be available.

Additional details about proposal format and past 
workshops is available online:

Proposals are due to Chris Young by March 7, 2008.

-meetings must be interdisciplinary (combining the disciplines of
history, philosophy, and or social studies of biology)

-meetings must meet all the requirements of Society meetings concerning
accessibility, open access, and open invitations to members

-meetings must be thematic in nature, which distinguishes them from the
regular ISHPSSB meetings

-meetings must demonstrates sufficient international viability to
reflect the unique character of ISHPSSB

-meetings may be organized as workshops or as conventional meetings, but
all members must be eligible to attend

-the selection process for speakers can be determined by clearly
indicated processes that differ from those employed in our usual
