The deadline for submitting presentation proposals has been extended to Tuesday 15 February 2011. The link to the electronic proposal submission form can be found here.

The 38th ICOHTEC Symposium will be held in Glasgow on 2-7 August 2011. The main theme of the meeting will be “Consumer Choice and Technology”. The aim is to examine the interaction of technology and consumer behaviour in a historical perspective; especially to focus on factors steering consumption and how consumers by their choices have influenced in technological development in the past. A transition from agrarian society to consumer society was one of the epochmaking phases in human history that can be studied from various aspects and contexts. You can download the CfP here.

ICOHTEC welcomes individual paper and poster proposals as well as the submissions of compact and coherent sessions to this pathbreaking symposium. The symposium programme will include scientific and plenary sessions, poster presentations, ICOHTEC’s business meetings and general assembly, excursions, social events such as receptions and a formal banquet, and pre- and post-conference trips. The premises of the University of Glasgow will serve as venues for this meeting.
