Call for papers for science heritage symposium

September 26, 2018

Those interested in the physical heritage of Australia’s long history of science and innovation, and the identification and conservation of this science heritage, are invited to participate in the Australia International Council on Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS) Under the Microscope—Exploring Science Heritage Symposium being held in Hobart in November 2018.

The symposium has been organised by Australia ICOMOS with the support of Cultural Heritage Practitioners Tasmania and the Royal Society of Tasmania, and with assistance from CSIRO Oceans and Atmosphere. The Academy is also supporting the promotion of the event.

The symposium will run over two days, with a one-day field excursion on Sunday 11 November and a day of presentations and discussion on Monday 12 November.

The aim of the symposium is to have a multidisciplinary dialogue that explores the heritage of Australian science, including what science heritage is, what significant science heritage we have in Australia, and whether there are particular management needs for the conservation of this heritage.

Call for papers

The organisers are now seeking papers from a broad range of disciplines for presentation at the symposium and are keen to hear from Academy Fellows and other scientists. The closing date for submissions is Monday 8 October.
