Papers, posters, symposia/panels, or workshops are invited for the 51st annual meeting of Cheiron:
The International Society for the History of Behavioral and Social Sciences.

We welcome submissions on any aspect of the history of the human, behavioral, and social sciences or related historiographical and methodological issues (see guidelines below).

The conference will be held at MacEwan University, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, with Nancy
Digdon as local host.

MacEwan is located in downtown Edmonton (metro population about 1 million). We acknowledge that the land on which we meet in Treaty Six Territory is the traditional gathering place for many Indigenous people. We honour and respect the history, languages, ceremonies and culture of the First Nations, Métis and Inuit who call this territory home.
MacEwan University is approximately 35 minutes from the Edmonton International Airport (YEG).
Ground transportation at the airport includes shuttles, taxis, car rentals and Edmonton Transit (bus
to train). Conference attendees will have the option to stay in MacEwan dorm rooms (equipped
with towels and linens) or nearby hotels.

All papers, posters, and proposed symposia/panels should focus on new
and original work, i.e. the main part of the work should not have been published or presented previously at other conferences.
To facilitate the peer review and planning process, please provide a separate page that includes: a)
title; b) author’s name and affiliation; c) author’s mail and email address and phone number; d)
audio/visual needs. In all types of proposals below, names of authors/presenters should not be
indicated anywhere but on the separate cover page for the submission.

inform your work.
Presentations should be 20-25 minutes in length.

Posters: Submit a 300-400 word abstract plus references that contains the major sources that

a 300-600 word abstract plus references that contains the major
sources that inform your work.

Workshops: Organizer should submit a 250-300 word abstract describing the workshop and, if

Travel Stipends : Cheiron will make funds available to help defray travel expenses for students, as
well as other scholars facing financial hardship, who present at the conference. We encourage
everyone to apply for support from their home institutions.

Stipend is limited to $100 to $300 per accepted submission; co-authored presentations must be divided among the presenters.
If you wish to be considered for the Stipend, please apply by sending the Program Chair a separate email message, explaining your  status, at the same time that you submit your proposal.

Young Scholar Award
Since 2008, Cheiron has awarded a prize for the best paper or symposium presentation by a young scholar. To be eligible for consideration, the young scholar must be the  sole or first author on the paper and must be responsible for the bulk of the work of the paper. The  young scholar must be a student currently or must have completed doctoral work not more than 5 years prior to the meeting.
About three weeks after the meeting, a pplicants for this award will submit a copy of  the presented paper (rather than the abstract); it may include further, minor changes. Submissions go to the Cheiron Executive Officer, who sets the exact deadline, and the entries will be judged by members of the Program Committee and the Review Committee.

The winner will receive a  certificate from Cheiron and will be asked to submit the paper to the Journal of the History of the Behavioral Sciences within a reasonable period of time. The Award winner may ask Cheiron for assistance in preparing the paper for submission to JHBS.
If the paper is accepted by JHBS for publication, the winner will receive a $500 honorarium from the publisher, Wiley-Blackwell, in recognition of the Cheiron Young Scholar Award. Please note that the award committee may choose not to grant an award in any given year and that the honorarium depends on publication in JHBS, in addition to winning the Award.
