Abstract Submission Details

Submissions opened – Monday 3 November 2014

Submission deadline – Monday 9 February 2015

Papers can be on any topic relevant to medical history but we are particularly interested in the overarching topic of Missions, Methods and Management. Due to time constraints, in the first instance no more than one paper per primary author and one jointly authored paper will be accepted for each presenter. If a presenter offers additional papers, the surplus items will be placed on a reserve list and may be called upon to fill available spaces.

Presentations will be 20 minutes in length with an additional 10 minutes for questions and discussion.

A limited amount of financial assistance is available for postgraduate students of history (Student Bursary application) and postgraduate students may enter their papers for the Ben Haneman Memorial Prize. For more information on either of these initiatives, please contact the conference organisers.
