Annual Meeting

26-29 October 2017

SHOT Annual Meeting Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (USA)

Sheraton Society Hill Hotel

Philadelphia is an appropriate location for the SHOT Annual Meeting. The region is home to an active community of historians of science, technology and medicine. It offers a vibrant cultural and intellectual life as well as outstanding museums, galleries, theaters and restaurants. Philadelphians called their city “the workshop of the world” in the nineteenth century, a legacy to which scores of historical industrial sites attest. The city also houses some of the New World’s oldest learned institutions, such as the American Philosophical Society and the University of Pennsylvania. These institutions, and others established later in the area, have collected books, manuscripts and other historical artifacts since the eighteenth century, and their collections now span most of the world and reach back to the thirteenth century.

The main conference site will be the Sheraton Society Hill Hotel located in the historic neighborhood Society Hill in Center City Philadelphia. Some of the events will take place at the Chemical Heritage Foundation.
