The Program for the Annual Meeting

The Program reaches the 600 to 1000+ attendees at our annual meeting. Your ad in the program also offers an excellent way to remind historians of science to visit your table if you’re exhibiting at our meeting.

To view details about rates and deadlines for the next meeting, please visit the publishers section in the meeting page here.

Inserts in Delegate Packets

Inserts are a popular way of informing meeting attendees about new publications, organization membership offers, or services of value to historians of science. You provide the inserts, and for very reasonable rates we’ll include them in the registration packets attendees receive.

Exhibiting at the Annual Meeting

Each year publishers sell thousands of dollars of books during our annual meeting. Whether you’ve got one table or ten, our annual meeting is the place to display your new titles in history and the sciences. We schedule regular coffee breaks in the exhibit hall to ensure high visibility. It’s a great chance to talk with professors before they choose titles for their classes.

If you don’t have a table worth of books, we also offer a collective book exhibit.You send us a copy of the book(s), and we’ll set up an attractive display with other titles that may attract perspective buyers. We also provide an HSS meeting staff member to supervise and answer questions.
