We cordially invite you to the 2012 IHPST Conference in Asia at Seoul National University (SNU), Seoul, South Korea, October 18-20, 2012. This is the first time that Asia has hosted a regional IHPST conference. The goal of the conference is to meaningfully integrate two academic traditions, the history and philosophy of science and science education, through an active exchange of ideas, research results and expertise shared from both disci-pline perspectives.
We have invited five distinguished scholars from around the world to present on the theme Exploring Science: Contributions from History, Phi-losophy and Education of Science. Keynote presentations will be given by Dr. Hasok Chang (Cambridge University), Dr. Igal Galili (Hebrew Uni-versity of Jerusalem), Dr. Alice Wong (University of Hong Kong), Dr. Norman Lederman (Illinois Institute of Technology), and Dr. Yung Sik Kim (Seoul National University). To learn more about these invited speakers, please visit our website athttp://ihpst2012.snu.ac.kr/speakers.php

In addition to the keynote presentations, the conference will sponsor traditional Paper and Poster presentations along with Symposium presenta-tions and Demonstrations. The symposium presentations offer small panels of scholars an extended period of time for presenting some perspectives on a topic and then engage the audience in a discussion during a question and answer session. This opportunity promises to generate productive and interesting discussions. In addition, the demonstration sessions offer an interesting alternative to traditional presentations as members are encouraged to offer an experiment or demonstration that exhibits some historical aspect of science or science teaching.  Finally, in an effort to engage young scholars (high school students, undergraduate, and graduate students) in the conference, we are offering a special Junior Session for presenting a poster or demonstration.

Conference registration begins on May 1, 2012. Registration can be completed online or via fax or mail until June 30, 2012. To enjoy the reduced “early bird” rates, please register before June 30, 2012. Starting July 1, 2012, the conference registration fee increases and registration must be completed online only. The deadline for final registration is September 20, 2012.
