The Chemical Heritage Foundation (CHF) and the American Society for Information Science and Technology (ASIS&T) are pleased to announce the Second Conference on the History and Heritage of Scientific and Technical Information Systems, November 16-17, 2002. It will be held at CHF (315 Chestnut Street, Philadelphia) immediately preceding the Annual Meeting of ASIS&T in that city.

Emphasis for this conference will be on scientific and technical information systems in the period from the Second World War up through the early 1990s. Forty historians of science and technology, information scientists and scientists in other fields will be delivering papers on a wide range of topics: informatics in chemistry, biology and medicine; information developments in multi-national, industrial and military settings; biographical studies of pioneering individuals; and the transformation of information systems and formats in the twentieth century.

Information science pioneers from the United States and abroad will be special guests at the conference and are among those making presentations.

Draft conference program available.

Most abstracts are available below.
