Event Programme

ISHR Provisional Program 25 May 2017


I am pleased to publish here the provisional timetable, above, for the upcoming ISHR conference in London. I have accommodated all special requests except those which asked for a panel of four papers to be on Thursday, which is not possible in the schedule. Please check your title, which can be amended as long as the content is not affected. I will be adding the names of the chairs of panels in due course - thank you in advance to chairs, who fulfill a very important role, not least in keeping the panels on schedule.

 

There will, of course, be tea/coffee breaks between sessions and lunch will be provided. There is, to remind you, an opening welcome session followed by a reception on the evening of Wednesday 26 July. Thursday and Friday evenings are free, with the conference dinner on Saturday evening. After long deliberations, we have decided not to arrange formal excursions on Sunday, but most of you will have plenty of ideas about what to do in London. We can offer further advice at the conference, and I have posted some suggestions on the ISHR website.
