Call for entries: IUHPST Essay Prize in History and Philosophy of
Science 
(deadline: 30 November 2016)

http://iuhps.net/pages/inter-division-commissions/joint-commission.php

The International Union of History and Philosophy of Science and
Technology 
(IUHPST) invites submissions for the first IUHPST Essay Prize in
History and 
Philosophy of Science. This prize competition, planned to continue on
a 
biennial basis, seeks to encourage fresh methodological thinking on the
history 
and philosophy of science as an integrated discipline.

Entries in the form of an essay of 5,000-10,000 words in English are 
invited, addressing this year's prize question: "What is the value of 
philosophy of science for history of science?" All entries should
contain 
original work that has not previously been published. For entries
written 
originally in another language, an English translation should be
submitted 
with an indication of the translator.

Entries will be judged on the following criteria, in addition to
general 
academic quality: a direct engagement with this year's prize question,
an 
effective integration of historical and philosophical perspectives,
and 
the potential to provide methodological guidance for other researchers
in 
the field.

The author of the winning entry will be invited to present the work at
the 
25th International Congress of History of Science and Technology in Rio
de 
Janeiro (23-29 July 2017), and presenting at the Congress will be a 
condition of the award. (The presentation of the winning work will be 
considered a 'non-paper-session activity,' and will not interfere with
the 
possibility of the winner also giving a standard paper at the
Congress.)

The award will carry a cash prize of 1,000 U.S. dollars and, in
addition, 
the cost of hotel accommodation for attending the Congress, though the 
Congress registration fee will not be waived.

Other strong entries will also be considered for presentation at the 
Congress. In order to ensure this consideration, entrants should
submit 
the entry also as an individual paper proposal for the Congress by the 
deadline of 30 November 2016, following the standard instructions:

http://www.ichst2017.sbhc.org.br/conteudo/view?ID_CONTEUDO=259

Entries for this essay prize are invited from anyone, without
restriction 
of age, nationality or academic status. Co-authored work will be 
considered, but if the winning entry is a co-authored work the cash
prize 
and accommodation subsidy would need to be shared out among the
authors.

This prize is administered by the Joint Commission, whose remit is to
make 
links between the work of the two Divisions of the IUHPST: the DHST 
(Division of History of Science and Technology) and the DLMPST
(Division 
of Logic, Methodology and Philosophy of Science and Technology). For 
further information about IUHPST, see http://iuhps.net.

Entries for the prize competition should be submitted in pdf format by 
e-mail to the Chair of the Joint Commission, Prof. Hasok Chang,
Department 
of History and Philosophy of Science, University of Cambridge 
hc372 at cam.ac.uk. Any queries should also be directed to him. The
deadline 
for submission is 30 November 2016.
