Society for the History of Technology (SHOT) will be held on October 26-30 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The call for proposals for open sessions has just been published. According to the announcement:
The deadline for open session proposals is March 15, 2017.
Open session proposals should be submitted in a single PDF or Word file to the secretary’s office (SHOT.Secretariaat@tue.nl). The secretary’s office will post the proposals on the SHOT website. To join a proposed panel from the Open Sessions list, contact the organizer for that panel, not the Program Committee. Open Session organizers will then assemble full panel sessions and submit them to SHOT by the end of the regular call for papers on March 31, 2017. The Program Committee will review the resulting fully formed session proposals, whether traditional or unconventional, for quality and adherence to SHOT standards of gender, geographic, and institutional diversity.
