In summer 2017, the fortieth anniversary of the creation of the Working Party (WP) on History of Chemistry of the European Association for Chemical and Molecular Sciences (EuCheMS) will be celebrated. The general aim of the conferences organised by the WP is to facilitate communication between historically interested chemists and historians of chemistry, and to gather the community on a regular basis. Previous conferences organised by the WP were held in Rostock 2011 (Pathways of Knowledge), Uppsala 2013 (Chemistry in Material Culture), and Aveiro 2015 (Chemical Biography in the 21st Century).

The 11th International Conference on the History of Chemistry (11th ICHC) will take place from 29th August to 2nd September, 2017 in Trondheim, a city founded in 997 which served as Norway’s capital during the Viking Age. The Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), which has been the country’s center for technology education since 1910, will host the conference. The conference is sponsored by NTNU, the Research Council of Norway, the Norwegian Chemical Society and the Chemical Heritage Foundation.

The conference program will include scientific sessions, key-note lectures, the WP business meeting, as well as social events such as excursions, receptions, and a banquet. For more information about preparing your submission and the conference presentation, please consult the proposal guidelines. The key-note lectures will be given by:

    Hasok Chang (University of Cambridge): “What history tells us about the nature of chemistry”
    Maria Rentetzi (National Technical University of Athens): “Revising the concept of safety culture in nuclear settings”
    Anders Lundgren (Uppsala Universitet): “Science in chemical industry – what did it do?”

The program committee especially encourages the submission of panel/session proposals, but also welcomes the submission of stand-alone papers. Session organizers and contributors are free to send their proposals on any topic on the history of chemistry, broadly constructed as the cluster of molecular sciences, industry, technology and engineering. A non-exhaustive list of possible sessions could include historical papers on the historical development of all aspects of material and life sciences, such as:

    Chemistry, professors, textbooks and classrooms
    Teaching and didactics of history of chemistry
    Chemistry and law: controversies, expertise, counter-expertise, fraud and activism
    Toxics regulation, risk assessment and public health
    Environmental chemistry, energy and regulation
    Chemistry, industry, and economy
    Spaces and sites of chemistry
    Instruments, collections and material culture
    Biographies and prosopographies, and databases
    Chemistry, war and exile
    Representation of chemistry, and visual cultures
    Alchemy, Chemistry and Early Modern Science and Medicine
    Gender and chemistry
