Secretary/Treasurer, Peter Schroeder-Heister 
, describing the subject of the conference,

 2. will include the participation of younger scholars.
 3. will include the participation of individuals from outside of Europe
 and North America.
 4. will use video-conferencing technology in addition to having

 In order to be eligible, an application needs to be supported by one of
 the member organizations of DLMPS/IUHPS. Conferences whose main
 organizer is a member of the executive committee of the DLMPS/IUHPS are
