The primary theme for the conference will be "Instruments
on display". We encourage you to submit papers about how
instruments have been presented in scientific collections,
museums and permanent and temporary exhibitions in past
and more recent time. Did didactic, scientific, celebrative,
propagandistic and rhetorical considerations significantly
influence the manner of displaying instruments? How were
instruments presented in a Wunderkammer of the Renaissance, in a 18th-century cabinet or in a 19th-century exhibition? How and why are they shown in contemporary science
museums? We hope that these and other questions will give
rise to interesting papers and discussions at our meeting.
